Meet The Directors
Alyson Nicely & Nikita Klotzsche
Alyson and Nikita met in 2020 and have been close ever since! Pageantry is a common link between the two and they are beyond excited to revamp the America's Ultimate Queen system.
America's Ultimate Queen was a national system that Alyson was a titleholder in. After several successful years, the original director had to close the system due to health issues. In 2021, she decided to pass the system on to Alyson who took over with open arms. Alyson quickly asked Nikita to be her co-director and the two have been working tirelessly to revamp and launch America's Ultimate Queen. They can't wait to continue to grow AUQ!
Alyson has been involved in Pageantry for over 20 years. She is passionate about what Pageants can bring to women of all ages. She has worked with several volunteer organizations and different systems. She is a certified Pageant judge, coach, director, and mentor. She lives by the motto of “We are all Queen's, crown or not.” Her main focus is encouraging and building all women up! Alyson is the mother of 4 handsome boys and is now learning everything she can about basketball and football. She is beyond excited to reboot America’s Ultimate Queen as this was the first pageant system that she won over 20 years ago! Don’t hesitate to reach out to Alyson if you have any questions!
Nikita's pageant journey began at 18-years-old when she decided to push herself out of her comfort zone and compete. Since then she has held a handful of titles such as USA National Miss Johnson County 2018, Ms. Indianapolis 2020, USA National Miss Indianapolis 2021, and Sr. Queen of Queens 2021 with the Miss Indianapolis Pageant. Over the past 2 years, Nikita has added Pageant judge and Pageant director to her list of accomplishments. On top of being a State & National Director for America's Ultimate Queen, Nikita also works full-time at All The Rage as the Store Manager, Buyer, and Marketing Director. When she isn't working, Nikita is spending time cuddling her fur babies: Pepper, Blu, & Luna. She is beyond excited to grow AUQ and encourage women to be the best version of themselves!
