Maria Montgomery

New Faces Director

Maria Montgomery, originally from a small town in Kentucky, had big city dreams of modeling since she was very young. She started pageantry in a way to fine tune her skills. She went on to win 3 Kentucky state titles in one year, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009. After placing as a runner up at Miss USA, she knew it was the time to seriously pursue modeling. She signed with NV Models which further helped her to sign with agencies across the country including FORD models, Wilhelmina Models and more! She finished her degree in Speech Language Pathology online as she lived in cities such as Chicago, Miami, and more! Some of her clients include: Pantene, Olay, Jockey, Nike, Kohls, a Tim McGraw Music video, working as a “trophy girl” at the CMA’s, and much more! She now lives back in KY and travels out of state for jobs while also working in TV. As a big University of Kentucky fan, she serves as the on-court entertainment host for UK Men’s Basketball and various TV stations and media outlets such as SEC Network’s digital content. Maria strives to help all inspiring stars reach their dreams in TV, modeling, or pageantry, just as others helped her!
