Welcome! to the Mrs. New Mexico website. I am Sheree Cooke, Executive State Director, and I am honored and thrilled to have this incredible opportunity, being a part of a pageant which promotes marriage and family!
In 2002, I was shocked and joyfully overwhelmed with emotion when crowned Mrs. Wyoming. Competing at the Mrs. America Pageant in Honolulu, Hawaii, presented me with sensations, emotions and passions I had not known before. It is these experiences that led me down the path to become a State Director within the Mrs. America system and I am honored to be New Mexico's State Director.
This was not my first opportunity in pageants. In fact, I have been involved in pageantry for over 15 years. I began in the Miss USA system and then was approached at a community event to compete to compete in the Mrs. America system. To find out there was a pageant which represented married women was thrilling for me. In 2001 I was chosen first runner-up, but then in 2002 I won!
It is from my pageantry experiences that I took away the knowledge and realization that the competitor's pageant experience directly affects the competitor, whether she wins or not. Therefore, I take great care in designing the pageant's theme, choreography and rehearsals, so every participant has a positive, rewarding and exciting time.
I go that extra step to help each contestant with individualized coaching and training. I am there to help with every step of preparing for competition and providing examples, assisting in wardrobe selection, interview coaching, and providing appropriate references and links for pageant necessities.
Furthermore, I believe in the Mrs. America system. They have repeatedly proven
themselves to be the premier pageant for married women. I encourage every married
woman to consider becoming a part of the Mrs. America family.
Thank you for taking time to visit our website. I look forward to meeting all of the
contestants and helping you to achieve the crown. To obtain your official entry

If you can dream it, you can become it"
