Stephanie Staker - Ms. Captivating 2012-13
“Regret nothing for everything in life is a learning experience” Stephanie first dreamed about winning a national pageant as a shy, lanky, awkward 14-year-old girl. 13 years later, representing the state of Indiana, she achieved her goal by winning the title of Ms Captivating. Stephanie, however, isn’t new to the modeling/fashion/pageantry industry by any means.
She began modeling at the age of 3 for Martings ads and decided to enter her first pageant at the age of 14. At her very first pageant, Stephanie won the photogenic award. In 2002, at the age of 16, Stephanie won Ohio’s Perfect Teen, and went on to place top 10 at nationals. In 2003, she placed 3rd RU at Ohio Teen USA, in 2004 she placed 2nd RU at Teen Ohio USA, and placed 1st RU at Miss Ohio USA in 2006.
After graduating high school in 2004, Stephanie dove into the modeling world at full speed, walking catwalks in Atlanta, L.A., Chicago, and Dallas, meeting and learning from the best in the pageantry and fashion industry. She graced the pages of Cool Book, Teen Prom, and Seventeen Prom. But, she didn’t stop there. After a week long photo-shoot modeling for Landa Designs, Stephanie began working as the sketch artist for the former designer until 2008.
Stephanie attended Shawnee State University on a full-ride academic scholarship, and graduated in 2008 from their nursing school. She is currently attending Purdue to further her nursing career, works in pediatrics, is married to her high school sweetheart, and is a mother to a beautiful 2-year-old daughter. When she isn't working or doing "pageant stuff", she enjoys reading, painting, doing DIY home improvements, or just being outside with her family.
Stephanie is excited to see what her future has in store for her after she closes the book to this chapter in her life. Good luck to all the beautiful women who will be competing for her crown and see this determined woman as a reason why you should never give up on a dream…
