Keilani is a twenty-eight year old from Washington State although she spent a good portion of her life in Maui, HI, where she learned more about her mother's heritage and where her family came from. She is an avid adventurer and even has a bug for thrill. She's been skydiving, swimming with sharks and more... it's safe to say you won't be catching this queen slowing down anytime soon. Keilani's been competing in pageantry since 2013 and has been fortunate to have worked with over one hundred and forty different organizations and community driven projects, traveled to eight different states  for a multitude of pageant reasons and been able to promote her platform "Breaking Boundaries by Beauty" which she created in 2016. Keilani formed her platform because over the duration of her journey, she always overcame the discouragement and negativity people tried to weigh her down with. Coming to realization,


Keilani saw it was a common issue within her community and even across the nation. Her platform provides support, guidance and inspiration for those who are needing assistance in writing their own chapters in their book. Lastly, Keilani is adamant about demonstrating determination and resilience but also how to be Pono (being genuine and kind). She hopes that by her genuine character provides a light for those who are in dark places and hopes that it inspires them to become the best versions of themseleves possible because she too did not know about the world ahead of her.



For over 30 years Katey Rose Buckingham has been living her dream as an AFAA certified personal trainer and fitness instructor in the New England area.  She loves being able to help people reach their health and fitness goals.  Katey also uses her organizational and creative skills as a professional administrative assistant and marketing coordinator for a successful wealth management firm in Bedford, New Hampshire.    

When she’s not teaching, training, or working, Katey enjoys volunteering in her community for many different events, including the annual “Walk out of the Darkness” 5K’s which help to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

 As a member of the Amherst Junior Women’s Club, she helps raise money for the local domestic violence shelters, as well as funding scholarships for young students in the area.  The club also hosts many fun family events helping to bring neighbors together.  Some of their most popular events are the “Trot Off Your Turkey 5K Race”, their annual Easter Egg Hunt, and one of last year’s favorites, Purse Bingo! 

 “Aging Strong and Fall Prevention” is Katey’s platform.   She incorporates an exercise program specifically designed for the senior community, to help them stay active longer in life, stay balanced, and most importantly how to avoid a fall.   Aging is a gift and she wants to everyone to “Age Strong”.

Katey is the mother of two amazing daughters, 34 year old Allison Kate and 30 year old Mallory Rose. 

She is very proud of the beautiful successful young women they have become. Some of Katey’s hobbies are sewing, crafting, and watching movies with her husband / best friend, Corey Buckingham.  Katey and Corey are happily living in their dream home in Amherst, New Hampshire with their fur babies, Sheba (woof) and Lindsey (meow).    

During her reign Katey will participate in many fundraising events, celebrity appearances, fashion shows and photo shoots.  She is looking forward to an amazing year of service!
