BIO

Kasey Marie Staniszewski is a student at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, studying communications. She won the title of Miss Maryland Teen USA in 2009, and continued on to place as 3rd Runner-Up at the 2009 Miss Teen USA Pageant.

One of Kasey’s biggest passions is singing. From an early age, Kasey was involved in community and regional theatre, helping to develop her confidence and hone in on her talents as a vocalist and actress.  From her first role as Marta VonTrapp in The Sound of Music, to her most recent starring role as Hope in Urinetown the Musical, Kasey has performed in dozens of musical theatre productions across the state of Maryland.  She feels honored to be asked to sing the National Anthem at deployment ceremonies and events that honor the U.S. troops.

Kasey has had many experiences in the fashion industry, working as a model for both commercial and editorial clients across the country.  Kasey loves cooking, exercise, swimming, playing the piano, and leading a healthy and active lifestyle.  Her favorite times are those spent with family, centered on music and laughter.

In her own words

Quate As Miss USA, I would love to encourage those who have struggled with hardships due to the poor economy. I would love to spread the message that having a positive outlook and strong, loving relationships is the key to success-not material things. Quate
