A native of Phoenix, Nicole Smith was crowned Miss Arizona USA on 19 November 2017 and represented Arizona at the Miss USA 2018 pageant in Shreveport, Louisiana. Nicole works as a makeup artist and photographer.  She has remained very close to her Miss Arizona USA family as a volunteer and supporter.

2018 bio:

Nicole Smith is an entrepreneur and trailblazer with a passion for encouraging others. Diagnosed with ADD at the age of 8, she spent most of her school years teaching herself how to learn. Deciding that a traditional four year college was not for her, she instead chose a path where she could channel her creativity. Working with business owners and mentors she was able to establish her unique beauty brand. When Nicole is not making others look and feel beautiful, she spends her time with family, and her 6 rescue dogs.
