Dr. David Curnel & Pamela Curnel - Mrs. Washington America State Directors'
Welcome and thank you for visiting the Mrs. Washington America website.
Pamela became involved in pageantry when she was 17 years old. She competed in the Miss Moses Lake Pageant and was first runner
up. She enjoyed meeting new people, riding on a float and making many appearances. The experience helped her become more
confident and learn about the importance of community service. Pamela has continued to mentor young girls and women in all phases
Pamela saw Mrs. America on television hosted by Florence Henderson. She immediately called the number on the tv. A few months
later she won the title of Mrs. Washington 1993. It was a dream come true for Pamela at the age of 41. A few weeks later became the
Executive State Director.
Pamela has been the Executive State Director for 23 years. This is her husband's eighth year co-directing the pageant with her. David
enjoys running errands, proofing scripts and being a master of ceremonies. He's always by her side supporting her.
David and Pamela have had the honor and privilege of working with some of the most amazing married women who are not only
beautiful but intelligent and articulate. These titleholders have spent countless hours promoting a cause of their choice and volunteering
in their communities throughout the state. The pageant showcases the contestants' accomplishments and how they are making a
difference in the lives of others through community service.
The Mrs. Washington America pageant is the most successful pageant for married women in Washington State and the only one to be
televised. This pageant family is one of a kind and is celebrated yearly.

Mayumi Muller, Mrs. Washington 1995 & 4th Runner-Up Mrs. America
Hair and Make-up Consultant
Mayumi Muller’s road to true love was a long and often challenging one. A model for more than 20 years and a former Mrs. Washington
America, Mayumi moved to the U.S. speaking no English and without a father. She went on to have children and multiple successful
careers, eventually meeting her husband and true love, Aaron.
Mayumi was born to an African-American father and Japanese mother, but lost her father when she was only 2. She and her mother
moved to the U.S. when she was a child, where Mayumi flourished. She attended the University of Washington on a track scholarship and
signed on with TEAM Models. She modeled in England, Spain, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Mayumi met and married her first husband and
had a daughter in 1992. In 1994, Mayumi tried out for Mrs. Washington America. Her goal was to be a role model for young women,
empowering them through femininity. Mayumi was first runner up in the 1994 pageant. Always looking to excel, she tried again in 1995
and won the crown - the first Japanese-African-American to do so. She went on to be fourth runner up in the Mrs. America pageant.
Mayumi used her crown to reach out to middle schoolers in the Seattle area. She partnered with Planned Parenthood to educate girls
regarding both contraceptives and the option of abstinence. Mayumi loved having the opportunity to reach out to and educate teen-age
girls. Continuing with her pursuit of a full life, Mayumi crowned the 1996 Mrs. Washington while 9 months pregnant with her second
Mayumi remains a firm supporter of the Mrs. Washington program and is good friends with the director, who she regards as a mentor
and role model.
Mayumi went on to have a 2 daughters and a son with her first husband, but they parted after 15 years of marriage. For five years,
Mayumi worked, raised her children, and dated men who weren’t quite right. One day she was manning a booth at a trade show for her
company and a man approached her. He was obnoxious and funny and she liked it. He asked if she was going to attend the VIP event
later that evening and she informed him that her company was one of the sponsors so of course she would be there. She ran into him
again at the event and through the evening they joked and flirted. Mayumi learned his name was Aaron. Eventually, Aaron asked her for
her phone number and texted her before she had left the event. They texted back and forth and eventually talked on the phone. Mayumi
said it was like talking to an old friend. They have not looked back. Mayumi and Aaron are now married and are best friends which is the
way it should be.
