At the age of 19 she won the Miss New York USA title and soon after took home the prestigious title of Miss USA 1995, the youngest to do so in a decade. She then moved to LA, to start a career in television in film.
She quickly landed a series regular role on “Pacific Blue” for the USA Network, and also appeared in films, including THE WEDDING SINGER, and BIG MAMA’S HOUSE 2.
In 2005, she starred in MTV’s hit series “Meet the Barkers.” The show allowed viewers into her life with then husband Travis Barker, documenting the couple’s daily life, including planning their wedding. Starring on the series also opened doors with other non-scripted programs, including “Dancing with the Stars” for ABC .
Aside from scripted and non-scripted projects, She has experience in the hosting world, working with E! Entertainment and VH1, and appearing on “Bridalplasty,” “Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants,” and doing red carpet corresponding for The Academy Awards.
Pageants however have remained a BIG part of her life as she is currently the executive producer for Miss Nevada and Utah USA pageants.
I’ve been chasing her down for a few months, and finally connected with here, so excited to have Shanna Moakler on the podcast!
