Stacey Mulinex

USA National Miss State Director for Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia and Virginia


Stacey’s love of pageantry is what inspired her to accept the position as the USA National Miss Director for Ohio, Michigan, West Virginia, and Virginia. Her daughter, McKenzie, started her pageant journey at the Carroll Festival Community Pageant, which opened the door to many other pageant opportunities. The impact USA National Miss provides through positive pageantry, community service initiatives, and personal development and leadership growth for girls and young women is incredible! Stacey is a business professional with high ethical standards and values inclusion, innovation, learning, partnerships, and most importantly, she has a kind heart. Stacey has spent the last thirty years in higher education. Stacey believes it is extremely meaningful to help others reach their life goals. Pageantry provides these same opportunities and helps girls and young women reach their fullest potential. Stacey is the owner of Mulinex Productions, LLC and is a representative for Nu Skin. In her spare time, she is a busy mom and wife, loves spending time with her Cocker Spaniel, Cooper, and enjoys traveling to Florida to visit her family.
