Our Miss San Diego committee is made up of many long-time volunteers, former Miss San Diego’s and other former titleholders from different cities and five different states.  We are all dedicated to helping empower young women to be the best they can be, improve their self-image and stage presence, and most importantly, earn scholarship money.  We feel we have a special group of people who have grown up in our organization and have gone on to completing a four year degree and now are giving back to our community.  Please click on the photos below for a short bio of some of our volunteers.




Below is our committee in alphabetic order.  Click on the photo for more information and bio.

 Miss San Diego Dream Team

We have a very special group of women on our committee this year that will be giving excellent advice to our contestants. We have named them our Miss San Diego Dream Team. This talented group of former MAO (and USA) titleholders have come to us from five different states! Their combined success is incredible! These formers have been talent, swimsuit, evening gown, interview and swim suit winners.  Marina, Miss California 2014, has competed on the Miss America stage.  Catherine, 1st RU to Miss WA, was a World Champion in Baton Twirling! Each of these formers have had years of training to prepare for pageant competition.  They know what it takes to be a winner!  This would be a great opportunity for any pageant girl to work with our dream team in improving their pageant techniques, styling, walking, talent, interview, etc. It has already proven successful with our current titleholders who were both first time MAO contestants and placed 4th RU for Teen and 3rd RU for Miss. We are very proud of what we have accomplished this year!
