BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County resident and 2022 Ms. Florida Petite, Beth York, represented the Space Coast with flying colors after she finished second runner-up at the National Ms. Petite USA Pageant in Milwaukee.

York, a resident of Brevard County since 2011, traveled up to Milwaukee where she competed against over 40 women at the national competition.

For Beth, the pageantry life is pretty new to her. This year was only her first year competing in pageants. In fact, in her first pageant at Ms. Florida Petite, she won the title and punched her ticket to the Ms. Petite USA Pageant.

After being declared second runner-up at Ms. Petite USA Pageant, Beth was extremely thankful for those who helped make it possible for her and expressed her future plans going forward.

“I met so many beautiful and talented women. I’ll be holding off on competition for now, but maybe I’ll compete again in the future. I’ve learned so much and I’m excited for my next business ventures that I’ll be focusing on now,” said York.

“Thank you to Florida Petite, Petite USA and all of my supporters and sponsors back home in Brevard County! I won second runner-up overall and winner of the costume contest!”

Born in upstate New York, Beth takes great pride in the life lessons that her childhood prepared her for the as she gets ready to compete for Ms. Petite USA.

Growing up in the mountains of upstate New York taught her how to be the woman she is today.

It’s those lessons she learned that led her to move to Brevard County in 2011. It was a chance for her to expand her horizons and take on a host of new challenges. While it hasn’t always been easy for her, she says her strength and resolve to be more has made her who she is today.

“I’m from the land of the snow, in upstate New York. This life is totally different than surviving up in the mountains,” said York. “It’s kind of tooth and nail in upstate New York. Compared to Florida, this is a life of tropical luxury for me, and I love it here.”

For this gorgeous beauty queen, pageantry life is fairly new to her and she will admit she is no seasoned veteran. In fact, Ms. Florida Petite 2022 was the first ever pageant she competed in.

Don’t let the pretty nails and dolled up lifestyle fool you though, Beth does not shy away from hard work. She’s recently took it upon herself to get her home inspection license earlier this year, where she works for Tepee Inspections, based in Satellite Beach. For this glamour beauty queen, it’s not uncommon to see her to climb up on roofs for the inspections or climb in some dirt-ridden areas of a home carrying her pink bag of tools.

In fact, some of the clients she’s encountered are surprised when she first shows up on site.

“People say that all the time when they call, so it’s not you that’s coming, right?” They say “Oh, you’re a girl.”

“But yes, even small girls with a pretty face can get in there, get dirty, do the job, climb up on the roof and have some tools. But I do love the home inspection job and I love working for myself.”

She also owns York Inspections LLC.

On top of being a home inspector for Tepee Inspections, Beth also owns a local talent company named ‘Queen B Talent’ which finds models work in dance, circus, and acrobats for special events.

Beth, also a certified aerialist, founded the company in 2018 and also uses it as a chance to teach girls how to be safe in the field. Talent safety is also the platform she has chosen, and will be representing, the Ms. Petite USA Pageant when she heads up to Milwaukee August 10-13.

Beth York created Queen B Talent in 2018.

“My talent company (Queen B Talent) started as a hobby of just different talents that I was doing that I enjoyed. But eventually people were so into it that they started throwing business opportunities at me, so I ended up starting the company.”

After starting the company, she focused her attention on a few things that mattered most to her.

“We mostly focus in circus arts and modeling, but we take in all kinds of talent and do freelance gigs all around the state and I’m also certified to teach classes. We train the talent and get them out there on gigs. Circus arts and circus shows is so fun. It’s a great workout, it’s a good time. It’s also pretty artistic and features some dancing, so you really get to express yourself a lot.”

“A big thing that’s really important for me is coaching the talent and teaching them how to be safe in the industry because I had to learn through experience over the last twelve or 13 years of just figuring it out on my own. And you do sometimes go through some very dangerous experiences, especially as a young model.”

In a recent interview with Space Coast Daily, the 31-year-old Space Coast resident doesn’t let the fame of being Ms. Florida Petite faze her. She says she doesn’t consider herself much of a socialite nowadays, but enjoys spending her time with her cat at home and reading her Bible.

Faith has played major role in Beth’s life and as she described in her interview, “If you don’t have God in your life, you might lose everything.”

“God is the biggest part of my life. I don’t think you can really achieve anything without God on your side. If you do, it’ll probably be snagged out from underneath a view at some point,” said York.

“I love to study the Bible, go to church, connect with people who have similar beliefs as me because I think that’s a really important thing.”

Space Coast resident, local small business owner, and recently crowned Ms. Florida Petite, Beth York is preparing to represent the State of Florida and Brevard County on the national stage when she takes the stage at the Ms. Petite USA Pageant in Milwaukee August 10-13.

Beth talked about her love for her church family at Victory Church in Merritt Island. A church founded by Drs Stanley and Melissa Patton in 2016.

In fact, Beth compliments Dr. Melissa Patton, wife of Pastor Stanley Patton, as helping mentor her during her days on the faculty staff at Eastern Florida State College.

What does Beth do in her limited free time? She loves working out at the beautiful 21,000 square-foot facility at Fitness Club Merritt Island, cooking, performance arts, traveling across the states and learning, just to name a few.

As Beth prepares to represent the Space Coast, and the state of Florida, it’s no secret that Beth loves the community she lives in. Whether it be her work as a home inspector, small business owner or a model, Beth has remained grounded despite the accolades she has received and believes in making a difference in the community.
