Allison Crandall was crowned Mrs. Minnesota-America 2018 on June 23, 2018. Allison and her husband, Benjamin, parents of two young children, are proud to represent Minnesota in August at the 42nd annual Mrs. America Pageant in Las Vegas, NV.
With a background in Esthetics and a degree from the Aveda Institute Minneapolis, Allison has been busy helping women feel confident and beautiful. Just recently, she has extended her services to include personal styling and wardrobe makeovers with her very own business, ALLISONmary Image Consulting. She believes true beauty radiates from the inside out and that when you look polished and put together, you feel better!
Pageantry has been a great vehicle for Allison to empower other women across the state and nation to dream and pursue their passions and goals. It has also been an important vehicle to advocate her platform for melanoma awareness and the benefits of early detection. Since her diagnosis of melanoma at the age of 31, Allison has been steadfast in her efforts to educate the public on this serious issue.
Allison participates regularly at various community service events and is extremely dedicated to teaching her children the value of helping others in need. Her son, Chase, accompanies her regularly to gather, pack, and deliver boxes of food, toys, and various household consumables to families less fortunate that live in nearby communities She believes that parents are responsible for instilling in their children the values of hard-work, compassion, and gratitude. She is hopeful that this will inspire other families just like hers to link arms with her and make an even greater impact on the community.
In her free time, she loves to vacation at her family’s lake home, workout, travel. The Crandalls reside in Apple Valley, MN.
