"It is an opportunity of a life time to earn the title of Miss Rodeo Iowa 2014. My goal is to share my passion for rodeo and our western heritage while serving as an ambassador for the state of Iowa. It has been my dream for many years to hold the title of Miss Rodeo Iowa, and I am looking forward to sharing my passions with those I meet during my travels."
