Kerry Heaps is the Publisher of Pageant Platform Magazine and the host of Pageant Platform Podcast.

Her passion is to help women succeed in Pageantry, build a successful platform and use it to build a successful career or business after exiting pageantry.
Her story starts in the spring of 2005, working in the corporate world as a recruiter she spent a lot of time at networking functions and participating in putting them together for other organizations. “It’s a lot of work putting together events and I thought to myself if I am going to do this, I should do it for myself. I was working part-time to save money to start my image consulting firm, so I figured this would be a great way to add in some revenue while the business gets up and running.” She left her corporate job in the fall and started getting business owners together at a local bookstore café. “I still remember my first Monday after I left my job, I got up that morning and thought, what have I done??? Although there’s been a lot of bumps in the road I don’t regret my decision one bit. My passion is helping others succeed in their marketing efforts, I know how scary it can be to start a business and no one should feel alone on their journey.” After a life-changing evening in 2016, Kerry retired her marketing business to focus on her true passion, beauty and pageantry.
