LYNDA SAMUELSExecutive Director
As CEO of Signature Productions, LLC, I have worked in the Pageant arena for almost twenty-five years. I started my career as the Arizona State Director for the USA/Universe Pageant system and was then invited to the United States Pageant system, where, after four years as State Director, was promoted to National Director of the Jr. Teen, Teen, Miss & Ms. Divisions.
I spent the next six years promoting, producing, and directing what soon became one of the most exciting National pageants in the industry. Year after year my delegates, directors, staff, judges, volunteers, sponsors, and colleagues grew to expect the grace, quality and professionalism of my national events ~ and year after year, I never let them down.
Twice featured on the cover of Supermodels Unlimited Magazine with my reigning National Titleholders, before I knew it, I became known as Momma Queen (or MQ for short!), encouraging everyone to ‘Dare to Dream & Take the Journey.’
If there is one thing I that can say for certain is that I’ve learned through my experiences, it would be to journey outside my comfort zone, and I found out how much more there is to discover once having given myself the power to accept possibilities and explore beyond that which feels safe and customary.
It was THAT permission to being open to accepting possibilities that fueled my motivation to change the face of pageantry by changing the landscape to conform to challenges, decisions, values, and attitudes.
Together with my fabulous team of colleagues, we offer more than one hundred years of experience doing what we all do best, and this time it’s for those women who are ready accept experiences and embrace possibilities!
