I really do appreciate you and David and everyone associated with Pageants NW! You guys made me feel so at home!

The whole weekend was phenomenal and I would highly recommend the whole experience to anyone!

I just wanted to reach out and thank you for all the work that you put in for our last pageant weekend. I had such an amazing experience and can\\u2019t wait to gear up for next year.

Maureen, thank you so much for a wonderful weekend! You, David, and the whole team make every year better than the last! I am so appreciative of you and everything that you do for every girl. Not all pageants are created equal, and it's obvious because you have set the standard.

Maureen you and your ENTIRE team of incredible souls were the absolute\\u00a0best I could have wished for this weekend and leading up all the way! You and your team made this weekend an absolute dream for us girls! I just wanted to Thank you and your team for this experience it was so amazing not only for this weekend but for the rest of my life as someone who's never done a pageant before I think it's definitely fair to say I have the pageant bug now lol! I just wanted to say Thank you one more time and as you go into this next year I wish you all the best for this next incredible year! I can't wait to cheer on Isabella at nationals!!

Hi Maureen, I know it's a little late, but I just wanted to thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity. I had such a great first pageant experience with you, David, and the entire staff. Please thank them all for me! I hope to return next year and be able to learn and grow even more. Have a good evening Maureen, and again thank you so so much!

I just wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for all your hard work this weekend! I had the most amazing time getting to know all the girls! I am so happy I participated. I walked away with an amazing new group of sisters and confidence! I saw myself grow and push myself out of my comfort zone! I had never before worn a bikini in front of so many people, I learned how to do my own hair and makeup, and I even put all the gemstones on my evening gown! I am so so happy! And I just wanted to say thank you to you, for always being willing to help and answer all my questions. I am excited to come back and do this pageant again next year for my final qualifying year, since I'll be 27 in April 2023.

Maureen, I wanted to reach out to you today to say thank you for the amazing pageant you put on yesterday. I had such a wonderful time and felt support from every single one of the volunteers and production staff there. I know that pageant day can be extremely chaotic, but you and your team handled it with such grace and professionalism. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future, but for now I wanted to reiterate my gratitude for you, David, Nichole, Amber, Katerina, and all the other volunteers that made yesterday possible. Thank you again, Emily Curtis

Thank you so much for everything you've done for all of us, from this weekend to everything that came before it. Though we don't get to personally see the amount of work you put in behind the scenes, it does not go overlooked. You, David and the whole team gave us the perfect pageant weekend. For just one day, it felt like the world stopped and nothing beats that feeling! I will be back next year BECAUSE of the amount of love and care I have felt from you all. I cannot thank you enough.

Maureen!! First off, thank you to you and David for once again putting on a wonderful production, even through a pandemic. The entire production was amazing and I had an incredible time!!

Hi Maureen, I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday! I know we just met this year, but already you have made a positive impact on my life. I hope you are doing well and are able to celebrate in quarantine. Best wishes, Paris Myers, Miss South Eugene USA 2020

Just wanted to reach out and thank you for a truly incredible first experience with Miss USA and Pageants NW over this past weekend. The whole process was so fun and so well organized. You truly have built and INCREDIBLE team of people to support us ladies backstage behind the scenes. Everyone was so kind and willing to help. I couldn't have asked for more! The hours of thankless work you two put in throughout the year are what allowed me to be unbelievably relaxed and focused as a contestant. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Honored to have placed in the top 5 out of such a remarkable group, and I look forward to competing with you again next year. Hannah Patterson

Miss Oregon 2020 was my very first pageant, and while I walked into orientation nervous beyond belief, the feeling was quickly dissipated as every single member of the production staff as well as my fellow contestants were warm and welcoming the entire weekend. I highly encourage anyone on the fence about competing to give it a shot, because the pageant environment was nothing but pure positivity and encouragement. Irene Zielinski

Hi David, I just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU for everything this weekend! I tried to find you after the pageant to tell you in person, but things were a little crazy! You and your team are an amazing group of very passionate, kind and inspiring individuals. I enjoyed every second of my time with you all. I truly feel like this pageant is where I am supposed to be and already can't wait for next year. Sara Donahue

Hi all, just wanted to say thank you so much for putting on such a wonderful pageant and allowing me to compete. I had so much fun with the girls and can't wait to try again next year! Best, Manju Bangalore

We were honored to be a part of such an amazing and uplifting event. There truly are no words to describe how beneficial the pageants are to these young ladies. It allows them the opportunity to give back to the community by setting a positive example that it's ok to just be yourself and reach for your dreams. That we are all successful when we learn to love and appreciate each and every one of our uniqueness. It truly is a priceless gift when you learn to love yourself. We are all unique in our own way and the pageants help you to realize that. David's story as well as him touching on your experience was very humbling. It brought tears to my eyes hearing what you both went through growing up and realizing that a lot of people in all different races have struggled. But that the most important thing is never giving up on yourself. I appreciate the both of you and all you are doing to make this world a better place. Reygan was so honored to be a part of that. We look forward to the near future and more pageants to come. Thank you again for your support! Sincerely, Anestasie Brocchini (parent of Reygan Carlson) P.S. Also, it was nice to meet with Michelle during the training class. What a positive lady and role model! Thanks again

I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity of growth. This past weekend and weeks leading up to the competition pushed me out of my comfort zone and broke a shell of closed personality! I will continue my efforts to spread Happiness, Health, and Wealth, and this has motivated me to fly higher to grasp a wider concept on my mission, it starts with shaping and defining myself and trusting that I am capable.

First and foremost, let me start off with what an amazing production your team puts on. Abby had such an amazing weekend. Thank you for that. She will be back to compete in the pageant. Thank you again for treating all the girls like royalty. Amy (parent of Abigail Pluedeman)

Hello Maureen, I am so grateful to have placed 2nd runner up. I have had the best experience with the Miss Oregon USA pageant, and I look forward to the opportunities pageantry may give me in the future. I would love to receive more information on Lindenwood University. A scholarship for online schooling is something I would have a hard time passing up! Thank you, Hayley

Hello Maureen, it was so great meeting you and having you as the director to my first pageant. It was such a pleasant experience and I definitely feel more confident and stronger from it. I'm wishing you all the best with pageant preparations for Miss Idaho USA and Miss Washington USA. I'm sure we will be in touch. Thank you for being so positive and uplifting!

Hi Maureen, I've been having dark times lately going through some dark horrible things and doing the pageant and having that amazing experience has truly kept me distracted by the bad things currently going on in my life. I loved what I was able to experience with your company and would love to pursue it as much as possible! Having this helped me through dark times and made me see the light and better things in life. It's kept me away from bad things in life and it's been a blessing! I was hoping I could still be a part of what you guys do in some way, if possible.

Dear NWP Team, you guys rocked it for Miss OR USA! Thank you for making each and every girl feel beautiful and celebrated both on and off stage. I can't believe it's already been a week but I'm already looking forward to next year. We are all excited to see what great things the NWP Team does this upcoming year, especially when one of the girls brings home that Miss USA title! Best of luck as you continue to crown titleholders and see you next year! Bailey Breving
