Spotlight On Miss Nebraska USA 2018, Bree Coffey


Imagine her surprise when Miss Nebraska USA Sarah Rose Summer was called as the new Miss USA 2018, and suddenly she realized -- she would be taking her place! 

We caught up with Bree Coffey, the newly crowned Miss Nebraska USA 2018 who was obliged to take over the duties of Sarah Rose Summers as the first runner-up to the Miss Nebraska USA pageant.

She is honored and excited to hold this title and forever be a part of the close-knit Vanbros sisterhood.

Up Close And Personal  

Claim to fame.

I have yet to discover my claim to fame, but I do make great Guacamole!

Fun fact about you.

I played Badminton for my Junior College, and we ended up going to State!   

If you have one wish to be granted in 2018 what is it and why?

I wish that anyone waiting for a life-saving organ would get one so that they have a second chance at life.

Tell us something that people don't know about you.

Coffey hasn’t always been my last name, I was blessed with this last name at the age of 21 when my stepdad adopted me.

What was your first thought when you heard that Miss Nebraska is Miss USA 2018?

My first thought was holy cow did that just happen as I screamed out loud “OH MY GOSH SARAH!!!” I mean, honestly how cool is it that Sarah Rose Summers is the first ever to win Miss USA from Nebraska?!

How does it feel to be the new Miss Nebraska USA 2018?

To be crowned the New Miss Nebraska USA is a blessing, and I am so honored and humbled to take over for Sarah Rose Summers.

What's your mission or plan as Miss Nebraska USA?

I plan to bring awareness to many different causes that are close to my heart. My platform is Organ and Tissue donation, but I would love to get involved with places like Open Door Mission, Rainbow House, Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Hospital, and many more great organizations.  


Life And Pageants 

When did you start getting involved in pageants? 

My first pageant was in June of 2014 when I competed for Miss Hollywood USA. Ever since that pageant, I've fallen in love with what pageantry is all about, and I haven’t been able to stop since.

Any piece of advice to girls who are planning to join a pageant?

The advice I would love to give girls who are planning to compete in a pageant is to have fun and be you. If the outcome isn’t what you wanted that’s okay because I always say everything happens for a reason. If you win, that’s amazing and if you don’t, try again. Every year there are different judges, and you never know what they’re looking for. 

Always stay positive because what you put out into this world will come right back to you, and I believe that your positivity will show on that stage or an interview.

Also, if you’re the first runner-up remember you can end up filling the winner's shoes so be ready and get ready for your life to change for the better.

The best piece of advice you have ever received in your life?

Always go with the choice that scares you the most because that’s the one that is going to help you grow.

What's your passion aside from pageantry?

One of my passions is to travel. I love to meet new people, experience new places, and I enjoy getting to eat foods I’ve never had and be around different cultures.  

Tell us something you can't live without and why?

The one thing I can't live without is my family. Family means everything to me, and I’m not sure what I would ever do without them. Friends are equally as important as they are family you choose, and with, that you gain an extended family.


Bree On Women Empowerment

I believe Sarah Rose said it best in her onstage answer, “Speak your voice.” Your voice is the most powerful thing you have, your ideas, beliefs, and those are what empower you.

Amber Dawn Butler, Miss Maryland Earth United States 2018


One fun fact about you: 

Most people don't know that I am an actress and model and can do a perfect imitation of Elmo!

Tell us about your platform. 

My platform is Ocean Sustainability. At six years old I saw a killer whale at SeaWorld and was plastered to the glass for an hour. I've been hooked on the ocean since that moment. I finished my graduate degree in Marine Ecosystems & Policy and now teach middle school science and volunteer for mentorship and STEM programs. Beach cleanups are my absolute favorite. I'm not afraid to throw on a wetsuit and dive right in, literally, to clean up our environment.

What are you looking forward to at Miss Earth United States?

I am looking forward to showing the judges my bold fashion choices that I have made! I can't wait for them to see my swimwear and gown. My swimwear is very practical and is something I would actually wear to work in and clean up our oceans. Be sure to get tickets to the pageant so you can see it too!

What is something you can’t live without and why?

I can't live without lip balm or lipgloss. I must have hydrated, healthy lips at all times!

One fun fact about you:

I played soccer once against the world-renowned female soccer player, Marta, in Brazil.

Tell us about your platform.

I am currently involved in working to promote Johns Hopkins’ sustainability and outreach initiatives. With climate change currently being one of the most pressing environmental concerns globally, I’ve committed my reign to my platform "GreenWave: A Movement Toward Global Environmental Awareness." I currently use my title to promote environmental education in schools and business, and awareness of climate change through sustainable practices in the workplace and home.

I am partnering with The Waterfront Partnership, Healthy Harbor, Blue Water Baltimore, and Baltimore’s City Council to help organize and participate in tree plantings, and harbor and city cleanups. I am also involved with The Baltimore Station where we work with homeless veterans, and Beans and Bread, a local soup kitchen. I hope to help more with fundraising events and efforts for these organizations.

What are you looking forward to at Elite Miss Earth United States?

Meeting my new friends and family... I want to learn as much as I can from my sister queens… It’s such an amazing opportunity to be surrounded by so many vibrant, intelligent women who are willing to help you.

What is something you can’t live without and why?

My water bottle... I take that thing everywhere! Water and staying hydrated is what fuels me, gives me energy, and is definitely a huge part of my beauty repertoire!

Ashley Smith, Elite Miss West Coast Earth United States 2018


One fun fact about you:

I enjoy Trick Riding on horses! I have a really good and natural connection to horses, which is probably why I feel confident doing stunts on them. I love to creatively express myself on them. My favorite show to watch people do all sorts of stunts and especially Trick Riding is "Cavalia." It's so beautiful, inspiring and spirit lifting - how they tell a story between man and horse!

Tell us about your platform.

My platform is "Freezing Forest Fires," I believe if we can mitigate climate change, we can reduce wildfire risks and reduce carbon emissions; climate change is playing a role in longer, hotter fire seasons, causing larger wildfires.

My advocacy, with the help of social media and public appearance, is to shed light on our environment and Wildland Firefighters. As a former Wildland Firefighter, I know the heavy risk that Wildland Firefighters put their lives through to save the people, homes and our environment.

Unfortunately, there is not enough governmental support in medical and mental health rehabilitation for WFF. Due to PTSD, there is an increasing number of suicides in the WFF community and they need our support, as they protect us and our environment.

What are you looking forward to at Elite Miss Earth United States?

I am really looking forward to meeting the delegates! I really want to be present and just enjoy the process, and all of the fun environmental activities, because I know how fast pageants fly, and the best memories come from experiences, you are most present in.

What is something you can't live without and why? 

Well aside from God, I really can't live without my phone. I know it's sad but it's the truth. I literally feel like I am stuck stranded in the middle of nowhere without it. I think this is a reality of a lot of people today. It's sad and kind of funny at the same time.
