The premier pageant in Texas; Mrs. Texas America pageant was held at The Palace Theatre in Corsicana on May 5th, 2018.  Along with 47 other delegates, Mrs. Fort Worth competed in interview, swimsuit and evening gown.  Chesney is thrilled to be Mrs. Texas 2018.

 

Born and raised in north Houston, Chesney is a graduate of Union University with a degree in Communication and Marketing .  An avid athlete and student, Chesney learned the importance of strength and perseverance at a young age.  These lessons propelled her into athletic success, giving her opportunities to play rugby for the Texas Women’s Elite Team.

Beyond that, Chesney learned first hand the struggles of living with cancer after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was a child. It was not until she, along with three of her siblings, was diagnosed with a rare stomach cancer that the challenges became even more personal.  Two weeks after her diagnosis she had her stomach surgically removed and began her journey of self-love and healing.  It is because of this that Chesney’s platform, “No Stomach For Cancer,” has afforded her the opportunities to speak across the country raising awareness while sharing a message of hope and overcoming. 

Her own journey of rediscovering hope and love led her to create the “We’re All Mammals Project”, a project that encourages people to accept and celebrate people with physical and mental differences.  

Chesney’s hobbies include playing with her nieces and nephews, going to the gym with her husband, and teaching children how to swim. She is a proud cat-mom. She enjoys hosting dinner parties with her friends and family, and is always in the mood for tacos.
