Former Feature Friday: Jessica (Colwell) Pohn

Jessica (Colwell) Pohn and I competed together in the Miss Iowa 2006 pageant season, and she went on to become first-runner-up to Miss Iowa 2007 Diana Reed. Although we hadn’t kept in touch much the last decade, we’ve recently reconnected in a BIG way 😉 Jessica is a driven, ambitious, and spunky former, and I know you’ll love hearing from another contestant who left her mark on that Miss Iowa stage!
