“Liz, you are more than just a pageant coach, you are a motivator and inspirer…Out of everything I have learned from you, I think the most important takeaway is that being myself is enough…I will forever use the lessons you have taught me to be the best version of myself not only in pageantry but also throughout all facets of my life. Thank you again for everything, you are truly the best!”

"Liz … instills a sense of confidence and supports the notion that truly being yourself is the only way to succeed in pageantry. Liz not only has a strong foundation of knowledge and experience to share, but the interpersonal connection she establishes with her clients is the true prize … Thank you Liz for helping me shine in the interview room and as myself."

"I have had the privilege of working with Liz since 2010.When you work with Liz, she doesn’t tell you what to say or how you feel about topics, she listens to what you have to say and helps you word it in a way that makes you stand out…I have never felt so prepared and relaxed at a pageant in my 10 years of competing…Being the last name called for top 15 at Coed nationals had me in tears of pure joy. My first time ever on the national MAC stage…Little did I know, I would walk away…1st runner up to the overall Queens title. I was ecstatic to say the least. I know I wouldn’t have been able to do it without all of Liz’s help….. Liz has helped me grow as a person, she has helped mold me into who I am today and the positive outlook I have on different situations. She has seen me grow up and she will always hold a special place in my heart as well as my families."

Liz instilled in me the confidence to never give up on my dreams, helped me gain the skills to be successful not only in pageantry but in life. While I had done this system for many years, Liz gave me the polish I needed to win the Miss Arizona Teen title and then bring that national title home... Liz, you are an amazing coach and I am so lucky to work with you... Thank you for believing in me and my dreams and being there when they came true.

“Personality is what judges look for. ‘Liz’ helped me find my voice through words on a page and transform my paperwork from a research paper to pure gold! I competed in numerous pageants before winning my state title… after multiple emails and Skype; I won my state title on the first try after working with her! She walked me through each phase of competition and worked with me on bringing out MY strengths and personality.
Thank you Liz for all you have done!”

"Liz, I just wanted to thank you for all your help and guidance ….I couldn't have done it without you! I am still in utter shock that at my third pageant I was crowned the national titleholder for the USA Ambassador pageant system! ...you definitely forced me to step out of my comfort zone, developing confidence I needed not only in pageantry but for everyday life."
