Lanie Hudson is a native of Spartanburg, South Carolina and a 2013 graduate of Clemson University where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies.
Beginning dance classes at a very young age, Lanie grew up competing in clogging competitions where she was won the Overall Female Champion Soloist award. She was also selected to be a contestant on America’s Got Talent. Her love for clogging and performing on stage led her to compete for Miss South Carolina, with clogging as her talent.
In June of 2014, Lanie was crowned Miss South Carolina and had the opportunity to represent the Palmetto State in the Miss America Pageant. During that year, she traveled over 35,000 miles serving as an ambassador for both Children’s Miracle Network and DonateLifeSC. Thanks to the Miss America Organization, Lanie was awarded over $36,000 in scholarships. She loves power-walking with her friends, spending time with her malti-poo, Cocobelle, and is a certified Pure Barre instructor. Lanie currently calls Spartanburg home and works for the software company, Softdocs, as an Account Executive.
