OWNER, Executive Director of Operations
Marcella Meyer was always a dreamer and visionary. She knew she had a purpose but wasn’t quite sure how to impact the community. Born in Brooklyn, New York and living as far away as Barbados and the West Indies, life has brought Marcella many opportunities to travel and learn other cultures. Miss Marcella believes as long as you have Jesus Christ in your life, size doesn’t matter.
In 1998, West Monroe, Lousiana native Melissa Stamper envisioned a traditional pageant for the full-figured women of today. This pageant would champion and celebrate the essence of this wonderful group of ladies without bias and without excuses. This dream was realized in 2002 when the Miss Plus America™ pageant was born. With an incredibly successful beginning, the Miss Plus America™ pageant is on track to rival the oldest and most prestigious pageant in our country today.
