I’ve got several beauty and fashion industry street creds…I founded a prestigious modeling competition where the overall winners were flown into New York City and escorted by me to be seen by some of the top Modeling Agencies. I sold the company when I was afforded the opportunity to produce events for nationally televised Pageants.
For over a decade I worked with the Miss Universe Organization (during my Directorship, it was owned by Donald Trump and NBC Universal), where I organized the New York and New Hampshire state pageants and worked with the titleholders that you have seen over the years on the nationally televised MISS USA Pageants.
I’ve helped launch the careers of people you have seen on the covers of fashion magazines, and in national commercials, soap operas, as news commentators, authors, fashion models, actors and working in gigs on some of the reality television shows. What’s more I have a degree from the University of Massachusetts and enjoy negotiating corporate Sponsorships.
I’m married to a great guy…Richard Bass (pictured below) He’s a domestic shoe manufacturer and his company’s footwear is shipped to 93 countries.
He’s one of the few domestic shoe manufacturers left in this country…Cardinalshoe.com

Before I get into the work details of my career, it’s important to point out that I’ve had the privilege through the collaboration of many smart and talented individuals to impact the lives of thousands of young people by providing them with a platform (i.e. interview process with judging panel, speaking in front of large groups and providing a venue whereby they prepare to present themselves mentally and physically for competition).
The reward for me in my career has come from seeing firsthand how the pageant experience has impacted and enriched their lives.
I’m often asked “Kim you produced pageants for nearly 30 years…sounds like fun. What did that involve….giving the ladies makeup tips and showing them how to walk on a runway?”
My answer is yes, I did that, in addition to the following:

Marketing – Content – Digital – Outreach – to recruit participants in the Pageants.
Use of internet – Facebook/Google AdWords
- Other forms of marketing
