Keri Sheffield.

One lucky cowgirl received the job title of a lifetime yesterday when she was crowned Miss Rodeo America 2018. Keri Sheffield, the newly crowned queen, was formerly Miss Rodeo Florida 2017, and is the first cowgirl from Florida to win the national title.

Keri is not just a pretty face. If she’s not at a rodeo you can find her working as an ICU nurse. Yes, Keri has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and plans to continue her education to become a nurse anesthetist. Her ultimate goal is to serve as a medical missionary.

You go girl! COWGIRL Magazine can’t wait to see what you accomplish not only as Miss Rodeo America 2018, but in your future endeavors as well!
