Allison is amazing! I went to my first pageant without any coaching and did not have much confidence. I then met with Allison who helped me with my platform, interviewing skills, confidence, and what to expect during the entire pageant. She did my hair and makeup for the pageant and I knew what to expect the entire time. The second pageant was like night and day and I walked away with the title! I am confident with Allison by my side I will accomplish my personal pageant goals.
With Allison and Shining Star Pageant Coaching by my side - 1st pageant top 15, 2nd pageant WIN, Nationals top 8, 3rd state pageant WIN .
Allison is not just our coach but a part of our family. Gloria always takes the stage with Shining Star confidence!
I have had the BEST time coaching with Shining Star. I reached out to them for mock interviews and the practice and feedback was amazing. I did 3 coaching sessions before my national pageant and improved my score up to 10’s! Besides interviews prep I also had the Shining Star team write my national winning spokesmodel speech! I truly don’t think I would have won American Royal Beauties National Excellence Miss title without them! I will 100% recommend them to anyone!

Allison helped turned my shy not so confident daughter, into this self-assured,well spoken, with a willingness to take on the world girl. I believe Shining Star Pageant Coaching did that for her. Not only is Allison an AMAZING coach but she is a friend, a sister, a confidant, she is someone these girls trust; but more than that you can tell the love that Allison has for each of her clients. When you join Shining Star Pageant Coaching you are not joining with just Allison, you are joining her whole SHINING STAR FAMILY. Let me be the first to say welcome to the family...
LILLY & TARA S.
As a mom , I cannot say enough great things about Allison and Shining Star Pageant Coaching. She is ALWAYS available to answer my texts, take my calls and help with social media day or night. She has always made me and my daughter, Lilly, feel like her #1 priority. Lilly has experienced tremendous growth since she started working with Allison. She has a special way with Lilly that pushes her to do better and better and challenges her to just have fun and be herself. Lilly loves being with her and looks forward to the time with her to laugh , grow and just have fun. We are honored to be a part of Shining Star and hope to have Allison along our entire pageant journey.
After working with Allison, and using her mock interview practice, I regained my confidence. She truly helped me realize my potential and worth and help set realistic goals that allowed me to place Top 8 at my last National Pageant. She is incredibly honest and extremely knowledgeable in so many more ways than just pageant coaching. I look forward to working with her again, in preparation for my next pageant journey. Thank you Allison so much!
I have been following Allison for over a year as she was IUM Ms. which has also been almost the time span I’ve been competing. After my first national pageant, ARB, where she is a sponsor I knew I had to get in contact with her. Allison took my critiques from nationals and completely turned me around in less than a month where I then placed 2nd runner up at IUM Ohio. She has helped me develop an amazing platform and idea I want to base my pageant journey on. She’s raw, real and will not tell you different She is also my life time stylist and she’s perfect in every way and you will regret not working with her sooner!
I have the best time coaching with Shining Star! I reached out to start with mock interviews and modeling as I struggle with talking, and I know I could do better, so my director told me to use Allison. I have improved so much and its amazing. Without Allison's services I would not have been crowned two big titles... Miss Ohio Elementary, and American Royal Beauties Miss Ohio Sweetheart! I recommend Shining Star Pageant Coaching to anyone!
Under Shining Star Pageant Coaching and Miss Allison, Ali has come a long way from laying her head and arms on the table during interviews to sitting up straight and being poised. Her confidence on the stage is getting better and she is making great improvements with her eye contact. From coaching in Allison's parents basement, to coaching at the community center and finally to her amazing studio...we love Miss Allison and all that she has done for Ali and especially how patient she is with all the emotional issues and anxiety that Ali has. If you are thinking of getting into pageantry then look no farther than Shining Star Pageant Coaching!
I started coaching with Allison in 2014 when I was new to pageants. She coached me in walking, modeling, personal introduction, interview, and even helped me with my wardrobe selection. I went on to win my first national title with her help! I could not have done this without her guidance and appreciate everything she has done for me over the years! I am currently working with her and her team to prepare for my next pageant in the summer of 2021.
Allison an her team make coaching fun. I’ve learned so much and became a stronger competitor!! I can’t wait to continue working with her on my pageant journey!
Shining Star Pageant Coaching will make you beyond ready to win that crown! Allison and her team have helped me develop into the pageant competitor that I am today. Within the first couple online sessions, I already noticed myself transforming. Allison and her team will make sure you are fully confident and ready for your upcoming pageant. I am so glad that I made the right decision when choosing Shining Star Pageant Coaching!
The Shining Star Pageant Coaching team always makes me feel like I am a priority and that my success is important to them. From answering the millions of questions I have to supporting me throughout the stressful process of pageant preparation, the Shining Star team is always there to make sure I am the best version of myself I possibly can be. I am so excited to see the improvement I continue to make in pageantry as I work with them!

My older daughter started working with Allison in April of 2020. In August 2020 she was 2nd runner up in her very first State level pageant (placing in or winning every optional she competed in), and in October she won in her second state level pageant (winning all but one of her optionals!). Her clientele’s list of awards, titles, and placements speaks for itself, but more importantly, Allison is a patient and fantastic teacher. She develops a very special relationship with each of her families, referring to the girls as “her kids”. I’ve seen her streak through a dressing room with a brush in one hand & a can of hairspray in the other yelling out “my kid needs me!” to fix nearly invisible flaws that she can see across a room. This is a coach who loves what she does! I have never seen someone so emotionally invested in each and every one of her girls as Allison.
I competed in my first pageant at 23 and went all in. I had no idea what to expect, how to prepare, or what it all entailed. I found Allison and knew she was who I wanted to work with. She answered all my questions, taught me how to walk, gave me wardrobe advice, and was always there for me in between our coaching sessions. I ended up winning my division in my first pageant, and I owe it all to Allison’s help and preparation! Couldn’t recommend Shining Star more!!!
The guidance and encouragement I have received from Shining Star Pageant Coaching has prepared me for success in pageantry and beyond. The confidence I've gained working with Allison and her team is priceless. Thank you to my friends at Shining Star Pageant Coaching for everything you do!
My daughter is a state pageant queen preparing for Nationals and I want it to be a good experience for her. We never had a coach and a friend said Allison would be a great fit for Whitney and she was right. Whitney adores Miss Allison and she always smiles when she talks about her pageant coach.
