Mrs. United States - 2022

Katie Keely

Hello, I’m Katie Himes Keely. A Kentucky native currently calling California home, where I reside with my husband and best friend, Ryan. By day, I have a fantastic career that I absolutely love as a Dermatology Specialty Rep where I’m presented with the unique opportunity to promote life changing and life-saving medications to Orange County’s most incredible Dermatologists. By night, I own and operate my own online boutique, Fancy Bee Bow Co, that I started in 2020 amongst the COVID Pandemic. “Fancy Bee,” as I call it, has given me the opportunity to virtually connect with people all over the country and most importantly, gave me the idea to start my platform, “Radiant Rainbows.”

I spent a considerable amount of time in hospitals as a child with an undiagnosed autoimmune disease up until I was 16 years old. During hospital stays, the toy cart was always something that brought me joy and I would undoubtedly pick the princess crown! When a friend’s daughter spent the first 18 months of her life in the NICU, I started sending bows to brighten her day. Clothing, unfortunately, is not always an option for children in the NICU and I came to realize many other people could benefit from this simple act of kindness. Since starting Radiant Rainbows, I’ve donated over 3,000 bows to hospitals across the country and I’m excited for the opportunity to hand deliver them to NICU warriors as soon as hospitals will allow.

I’ve been competing for a United States National Pageants' Title since I was 15 years old and have been honored to compete at the national level three times over the years. Winning the Title that Isabella’s vision was founded upon is an extreme honor, and I plan to spend my year honoring her memory and her legacy.
