Nicole Duffel has been selected Mrs. Nevada United States 2014 and will represent Nevada in the national pageant being held in Las Vegas in July. Previously, she won the talent award and was crowned Ms. Nevada Senior America 2012-13. It was her first time she had ever participated in a pageant.

After judging the Miss Teen, Miss and Ms. divisions of the United States system, Duffel was encouraged to participate in the Mrs. Nevada United States pageant which didn’t have an age limit.

“I was excited by the possibility to participate in a pageant again. When you take on a challenge like this you learn so much about yourself inside and out. I call it staying on point to keep the best you can be always ready for opportunities that may come your way.”

Duffel continues her service to the community, travels to events throughout Nevada and does her best to make a difference in the world.
