From Beauty Queen to the Boardroom: How Pageant Life Prepares You for a Successful Career

One of our greatest joys at Pageant Associates is the opportunity to champion successful young women. Because we see how hard they work, we firmly believe that pageant life helps them to cultivate an array of skills that can be directly applied to the professional workforce. We’re proud that so many pageant participants now have enriching careers in a variety of fields – from journalism to finance, health care, business and more. That’s why we were honored to talk with former Miss USA Erin Brady.

Pageant Associates is a firm believer in the power of education. Among all of our contestants, we stress the importance of education. Why? Because knowledge is power. And because we want all of our contestants to be their “best selves,” we fully advocate the power of education. That’s why we turned to former Miss Indiana Teen USA® titleholder, Kristina Ellis, to share how her experiences in the world of Pageants helped her to obtain college scholarships and earn multiple degrees.

To help us celebrate and shine a spotlight on the importance of confidence, we had the pleasure of sitting down with former Miss USA Kimberly Pressler.

She also works alongside her husband as the Chief Financial Officer of their own private company. And together, she and her husband are the proud parents of a beautiful 7-year-old daughter. Kimberly shared these pearls of wisdom for creating and maintaining confidence, and why she is passionate about raising her daughter to be confident in everything that she does.
