Miss Minnesota USA
Miss Minnesota USA 2018
Kalie fell in love with singing and playing piano at the age of 8 and started playing guitar shortly after. She performed in various competitions across the country and was invited to be a vocalist with the Continental Singers at the age of 15. Through this organization Kalie traveled from California to New York performing in over 37 states while fundraising for children’s hospitals.
Her passion for performance and people led her to an involvement in pageants where she began working very closely with organizations such as Got Your Six and Operation Homefront. She became the Executive Assistant to the First Lady of Idaho and is thankful for that experience, as she feels it was instrumental in preparing her for the title of Miss Minnesota USA!
One of Kalie’s favorite places to be is on the farm with all her animals. Her furry companions consist of a dog, a horse, and one hilarious fainting goat. She treasures her time with family and friends and loves spending her summers exploring the beautiful Minnesota countryside in off-road vehicles!
Kalie is completing her degree in Business and Marketing at Minnesota State University Moorhead. She is the owner of a wedding and events venue in Eagle Bend, Minnesota and hopes to inspire other young entrepreneurs to confidently pursue their dreams. Kalie is honored to be selected as a representative of all women across the state throughout her year as Miss Minnesota USA.
