I’ve worked with Valerie for 2 years and have gone from inexperienced to Miss Maryland Teen USA! Valerie has always been there when I needed her and has helped me to deal with many interviews successfully and with complete confidence. Valerie not only knows about every current event topic, but she explains them in easy to understand terms. She makes understanding the news simple and helps me develop questions that aren’t memorized, but really reflect my understanding of the topic.  I certainly attribute my success to you, Valerie!” -Hannah Brewer, Miss Maryland Teen USA 2013

I know that your guidance assisted me in winning the Miss Missouri USA interview portion and placing in Top 15 at Miss USA 2011.-Hope Driskill, Miss Missouri USA™ 2011, Semi Finalist Miss USA™ 2011

“I wanted to develop my fullest potential in interview, and I knew from the moment I first spoke with Valerie that she would help me reach that goal. Valerie adapted to my learning style, and actually broke down the most challenging political issues and their entire histories into a storybook format! Interview became something I looked forward to, and as weeks passed, I began to see significant results in the way I thought, spoke, and delivered my opinions. I was focused, confident, and fully prepared to handle the Miss America interview. Valerie Hayes is the best of the best!” -Katherine Putnam, Miss Louisiana 2009,
