Miss Minnesota Teen USA
Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2018
When one door closes, another always opens. After being a competitive dancer for many years, Peyton suffered a knee injury in July 2017 which required reconstructive surgery with a four plus month recovery process, forcing her to quit dance her senior year of high school. Devastated and needing something to focus on, she turned to pursuing her other dream - competing in pageants. Being selected as a contestant for her first pageant ever was exciting enough, but to actually win Miss Minnesota Teen USA , exceeded all expectations.
Born and raised in Rosemount, Minnesota, Peyton lives with her parents, Rick & Maureen, younger sister, Lauren and four legged sister, Ellie. She loves spending time at her cabin up in northern WI where she snowmobiles, goes fishing, and rides the pontoon all day.
Peyton has been active with DECA her last three years of high school, is an Arts Honor Society member at her school, and stays busy with various modeling opportunities. But nothing compares to now being a part of the Miss Universe Organization. "Win or lose, this is amazing! Being a part of this pageant experience has seriously changed me in so many ways, and I am so grateful for everyone who was a part of me getting here as well as those I will be blessed to meet over this next year representing the state I love, as Miss Minnesota Teen USA."
She is excited to share her joy with others and to support the organizations that are dear to her. This new journey has only just begun for Peyton and she is ecstatic for the big things she will accomplish this year.
