Mrs. Louisiana Plus

As a 49 year old mother of 3 young adults, a wife of 27 years, and youngest daughter of two my dream come true! Being a little girl from Rayville Louisiana, I knew how to dream but didn’t have the faith to believe someday it would come to pass! This pageant was designed to champion and celebrate women without bias and without excuses. Among some of the most exciting interests of the Miss Plus America pageant, its a no judgement zone! Your size, shape, status, etc does not matter! You are accepted regardless! Many plus size women (women in general) deal with seasons of insecurities, low self esteem, rejection, etc! However, this faith structured organization has afforded many opportunities for this group of women to showcase their inner and outer beauty on any platform given! For me, it fell right in line with my ministry, IM EXPECTING GOD (IEG) MINISTRIES!


Because I’m passionate about being one to inspire, motivate and encourage, I have found joy sharing with women from all walks of life! In Sept 2020, God placed me on a platform of younger women to be that positive witness.  Also,  I have learned to embrace what God is doing in this season!


Jeremiah 29:11 clearly states-“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” - ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NIV‬‬


As a result of this amazing opportunity, I was crowned Mrs Twin Cities and Mrs Louisiana Plus America 2020-2021! Beholding such distinct honor, I’ve had the pleasure of worshiping with various churches, meeting local and state leaders, engaged in serving the needs of our community, sharing care packages with college students and hosting events with intent to inspire all women!
