"I love having Mekayla as my Pageant Coach. She is always encouraging and helped me build confidence both in interview and on stage. She knows all the tricks of the trade and made sure I was focused on the right things throughout pageant season. I found myself becoming very clear on what I wanted out of my year as queen and was able to effectively communicate my vision to the judges thanks to Mekayla. Plus, she's super fun!"

"Mekayla is an incredible pageant coach! Her knowledge and experience level in every facet of pageantry is outstanding. She guided me through all the details including interview, swimwear, onstage questioning, and outfit selection to help me feel my best at Mrs. Colorado America. During our sessions, Mekayla was organized and prepared with a game plan on skills that I could improve. I would describe her as kind, genuine, and truly passionate about what she does as a coach. With the help of her expertise, I placed 3rd overall in my first Mrs. Colorado America pageant! I would highly recommend her to any pageant competitor looking to bring the whole package!"

"Mekayla was instrumental in preparing me for Mrs America! I competed with zero regrets, knowing we had fully prepared. Her strategic approach to interview gave me extra confidence, allowing the best version of me to shine in the interview room! And once on stage, I looked and felt my best, knowing we had prepared for every aspect of competition, from my walk to fitness! Mekayla’s knowledge and expertise, along with a strong to desire to see each woman reach her potential through pageantry, sets her apart in the pageant world. She is now a trusted friend and I’m so thankful for her part in my pageant journey!"

"Where do I even begin?! When I first decided to compete for Mrs. Indiana I did some research and I knew Mekayla was the coach or me. I wanted someone who was real, honest, and raw… that is exactly what Mekayla is. I wanted someone who was going to teach me real life skills that could be used to crush the pageant interview AND kick butt in the “real” world. I have so much more going on in my life than just pageantry and wanted skills that were transferable after pageantry was gone. I learned so many vital skills from my sessions with Mekayla and this is what, ultimately, lead to myself capturing the Mrs. Indiana crown and making top 15 at Mrs.America. I highly recommend Mekayla to anyone trying to tackle a pageant in their near future!"

"I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing directors and coaches, but Mekayla is among the BEST I have ever had! Mekayla genuinely cares about seeing you succeed - not just in pageantry, but as a person. She has an incredible ability to help you dive deep into discovering who you are and how to promote your personal brand. I appreciate her taking the time to truly get to know me and help me become the best version of myself possible. I would recommend Mekayla to anyone - those who need help just starting out or seasoned vets. She has a unique perspective and experience that cannot be duplicated!”

“In the last ten years in the Miss America Organization I have been fortunate to work with many well-informed, supportive coaches and trainers, so in 2017 I knew I hit the jackpot when I was awarded the opportunity to work with Mekayla. She is thoughtful, genuine, caring, patient and real. She brought out the very best in me, helping me break down barriers that were holding me back. Mekayla helped me understand that I was beautiful on both the inside and outside, and most importantly led me to realize that I am good enough. Her lessons in interview, stage presence, and walking are unparalleled, but I will forever be indebted to the mental and emotional confidence Mekayla instilled in me. I am forever grateful to her for her guidance, support, and friendship.”

"Mekayla's qualifications, combined with her professionalism, enthusiastic outlook, personable attitude and a supportive approach every step of the way, make Mekayla and Reign Pageantry the ideal choice for pageant coaching on your road to the crown! Combine Mekayla's coaching with a client who is committed to preparing for a pageant - and you've got success in the making! As a "pageant mom," I confidently trust Mekayla's guidance with Ali's pageant training. I am confident, if you choose to invite Mekayla to be your pageant coach, you will feel the same! On a personal note, Mekayla is a wonderful person! She is transparent and shares her journey like an open book. She chooses to use her own experiences to inspire and guide contestants on their own journey, in pageants and with non-pageant endeavors, as well. What we learned is that Mekayla provides much more than pageant coaching. She teaches you how to approach the sport of pageantry from both a practical standpoint and a hopeful one, while encouraging your uniqueness along the way!"
