I was born in Redding and have lived in Shasta County my whole life. I have been a part of rodeo for as long as I can remember. My family has been involved with the Redding Rodeo since 2004. My mom was drilling with the Redding Women’s Rodeo Association and my Dad, sister and I were watching and supporting her. Then suddenly, I see Josey Kelley, Miss Redding Rodeo 2004. From that moment on, I have always wanted to be that woman that young girls look up to as I had looked up at Josey and all the Miss Redding Rodeos from that point on.
In 2007 I joined the Redding Jr Rodeo Association and began riding with the RJRA Drill Team. It was here that I started to learn the ins and outs of both horseback riding and rodeo and this is when I truly fell in love with this amazing sport and way of life.
Despite my focus on school, my art and drill which are all passions of mine, the rodeo queen bug bit me. While I didn’t earn the titles I competed for in the past, it set me on my journey for Miss Redding Rodeo. And I learned and grew with each competition. When I ran for Miss Redding Rodeo 2016, not only did I receive First Runner Up but I gained a new friend in Miss Redding Rodeo 2016, Jayden Byrne. She has been an amazing ambassador for rodeo and cannot wait to see where she will go in life!
As Miss Redding Rodeo 2017, I plan on continuing the traditions that Jayden started in 2016 and I hope to make my own mark on my community and the association. I have so much extended family here, that I feel so lucky and am so grateful and honored to represent them all. But, you do not need to be a part of this amazing association to run for Miss Redding Rodeo. If you are willing to put in the time and effort, then your dreams can come true! Just as mine have!
