GUEST BLOG: Kern helps father reconstruct lifestyle
Wyoming raised me, and I am very proud of my roots. My platform as Miss Wyoming is to encourage other young women like me to pursue their unique dreams. As an entrepreneur, I own two businesses. Right before the pandemic hit, I started my first business, and my father suffered from what was called the "widow maker" heart attack the same year. Having been allowed to lead and make a difference, I knew I had to share my story with the American Heart Association.
