Ever since I can remember, I have always had a love for horses. But, it was when I was 10 years old that I decided I really wanted to experience it firsthand after learning that my mother grew up on a ranch in Whitmore. I took my first riding lesson and the rest is history. I started out by going to sortings in Red Bluff. Then, I found my love for barrel racing. I competed all 4 years in the California High School Rodeo Association, District 1, in barrel racing and pole bending.
I attend Shasta College and am pursuing a degree in communications. I would love to work in the western or sports industry. My experience as Miss Redding Rodeo so far has helped me greatly in my public speaking and relation skills. I look forward to being a role model and inspiration to people of all ages.
As Miss Redding Rodeo, I want to educate, inspire, and most importantly, share my passion for the amazing sport of rodeo with the great city of Redding, which I am so blessed to call my home. Not being involved with rodeo my whole life, I have personally witnessed what an impact the sport can have on a person. The western way of life is contagious! It teaches hard work, determination, patience, compassion, and strong family values. To be an ambassador for such things is an absolute honor. I believe rodeo queens are the best advocates and I aspire to be nothing short of that during my reign. I want to show the public that rodeo queens are more than just glam, glitz, and glitter. I am so excited to serve the community and lay a path for future generations of cowboys and cowgirls. What a privilege it is to promote and support the north state all while sharing my passion and love for rodeo with the people of my hometown and all who I come in contact with. The western way of life has shaped me into the person I am today and I hope to help it do the same for others as Miss Redding Rodeo.
Thank you so much for all the support,
