Regan Ringler, Miss Tennessee USA 2023, currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee. She is a native of Mississippi and has deep pride for her alma mater, The University of Southern Mississippi. There she received her Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship, and she minored in Graphic Design. Upon graduating in 2019, she moved to Nashville, where she completed her Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership from Trevecca Nazarene University. While earning her MA, she worked full-time as an Account Executive and maintained a part-time job as a stylist and model in designer clothing liquidation.
In her spare time, Regan enjoys playing tennis with her Dad, volunteering at Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, and spending time with her ragdoll cat, Theodore. She is passionate about fitness and healthy living. Regan never misses a chance to travel or try new foods. She views every risk as a challenge and an opportunity. Above all, Regan values time with her family and loved ones.
Prior to earning her title, Regan competed for seven consecutive years with the Miss Universe Organization. Her time as a competitor brought with it the pride, poise, and passion to effectively carry out the role of not only Miss Tennessee USA, but Miss USA. The resources and platform that the organization provides will help catalyze the impact that Regan will have on those she encounters along the way.
Regan’s life has been defined by her fortitude–saying “yes” to chance and learning lessons along the way. She has set her intention on persisting as Miss Tennessee USA in that same way. Never miss an opportunity. Leave a unique legacy. Say “yes” and enjoy the ride.
