|With more than 25 years of pageant experience, Cristin Duren is a veteran to the world of pageantry. Winning numerous titles throughout her lifetime, Cristin is proud to have represented her home state as Miss Petite Teen Florida, Miss Florida Teen All American, Miss Florida Teen USA, and Miss Florida USA 2006, placing Top 5 at Miss USA. Cristin is also the very first titleholder of Florida to ever claim victory to both the Miss Florida Teen USA and Miss Florida USA titles in a lifetime as well as the first ever representative to win the photogenic award for both Miss Teen USA and Miss USA.
An honors graduate of the University of Alabama with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations/Communications and a minor in Computer Science, Cristin spent her years on campus as a U of A Cheerleader, President of Phi Mu Sorority, and a Philanthropic Chairman. A passion for children, she has donated much of her time to various causes such as the Children's Miracle Network, St. Jude Children's Hospital, and Best Buddies, among others. Aside from charity, Cristin has had many opportunities for national exposure such as being selected a Deal or No Deal Model, chosen for a personal interview on CNBC, acting out a skit/interview on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and picked for an E! Reality documentary titled "UNCOVERED: The Hidden Lives of Miss USA."
Once a pharmaceutical sales representative, Cristin currently hosts various TV shows in the North Florida area as well as working as a spokesperson for Lexus and working with aspiring pageant titleholders who want to be PageantReady™. Cristin has found that the world of pageantry seems to correlate well into everyday life and she aspires to continue believing and directing young women along her similar path.
Whether a leader, role model, and friend to another, or a spokesperson, actress, and a national representative, Cristin believes in the power of a dream and is excited to encourage, motivate, and provide a friendship in the pageant industry. As she has always stated, " It isn't always so much about the destination that is most important, but the journey that takes you there."
