Do they say you're a "forever" but you feel like a "yesterday"?

If you want to find purpose beyond the crown, but don't want to lose that sparkle and passion within your life, this is for you.

I created Beyond the Crown to support women holistically throughout their journey in pageantry - and beyond. 


As a seasoned competitor myself, and having gone through all of the ups and downs imaginable, I know exactly what it's like to maneuver the complexities of the pageant world and to come out on the other side feeling like I hit a brick wall.

Beyond the Crown is a coaching program that helps you find purpose beyond just winning the crown - whether you are still working towards that goal, you're on the other side of it, or you've closed that chapter never quite having achieved what you wanted.

Before the Crown

You're still competing, but want to take a different approach. It's time to start thinking big picture and how to set yourself up for success whether you take home the crown or not.

Forever A Queen

You've recently relinquished your title and have hung up the crown and sash - maybe for the last time? It seems like you should be at an appearance, or talking with your board, but instead, you're living your "normal" life and it still just doesn't feel right. You need help finding purpose beyond the crown and redirecting your energy now that you are "just you".

Aged Out, Now What?

You aged out of your system and you're not really sure what to make of it. There are lots of emotions swirling around and none of them are particularly great. You're not sure how to process your feelings and still use your experience as sound footing to launch into your next thing with a positive notion.

any of these sound familiar?

I'm here to help.

My name is Annika Wooton, and if you're new here, you should know that I've been involved in the pageant world for over half my life. After competing for seven years in a row to earn the title of Miss Kansas 2019, placing in the Top 15 at Miss America, serving for two years throughout the pandemic, and then deciding to throw my hat back in the ring for my only remaining year of eligibility for Miss Kansas USA (and losing)... I'd like to think I have a pretty good wealth of experience when it comes to navigating the different stages of the industry.

I think competing in pageants is very similar to being a professional athlete - dedicating a very specific period of your life to a "sport" that is all-encompassing, and then that chapter closes with a definitive point (sometimes very abruptly).

I'm here as a seasoned competitor, pageant consultant, and now putting on the hat of "life coach" to guide you through finding a purpose beyond the sparkly crown.
