Mrs. New Mexico United States 2014

When I was a little girl I always wanted to be on stage in a national pageant.  Who knew it would be the Mrs. United States pageant!

I am so honored to represent New Mexico and my family this year.  This experience has truly changed my life.  I have challenged myself in so many areas.  I had heard it would help push me out of my comfort zone.  That is an understatement!

As a woman, wife and stay at home mom I didn’t feel like I could have made much of an impact.  Like a lot of moms, I felt a bit invisible to the outside world.  I had no idea that I could make a difference for anyone.

I lost my baby weight, bought some false eyelashes, got a spray tan and took on the world.  While some would say those things are superficial the results were not.  I learned so much about myself and who I want to be.  With the help of Sarah Baca at the New Mexico Autism Society I learned how to spread autism awareness and acceptance.  I know that there are many who make an even bigger difference than I ever did without a tiara and sash.  They are the true heroes.  However, this is my journey and somehow I got to do it with a sparkling tiara.  I am so thankful for this experience.
