A native of Winterport, Elizabeth Kervin was crowned Miss Maine USA on 15 January 2022 and represented Maine at the Miss USA 2022 pageant in Reno, Nevada. Eizabeth, the youngest contestant in the 2022 pageant, was working towards obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in biochemistry at Husson University during her Miss Maine USA reign.
Elizabeth Kervin grew up in the small town of Winterport, Maine, and is currently attending Husson University where she is working towards obtaining her Bachelor’s Degree in biochemistry. As a Dean’s List student in one of most rigorous programs Husson has to offer, Elizabeth started out as the only female in her program. With this degree, she plans to go to medical school in pursuit of becoming a trauma surgeon.
Her motivation behind her dream in the medical field is inspired by both of her parents; her mother who is a nurse, and her father who spent 23 years in the Army, and as a combat medic. Her father’s time in the military is the true inspiration behind her passion for advocating for the Veteran’s in Maine. She has recognized the tremendous absence of resources and counseling services available to veterans not only state wide, but nationally, and globally. Elizabeth has been an active volunteer at the local Hampden VFW, and will use her title to continue her advocacy work and volunteering to help the veterans of Maine and for those who selflessly fight for our freedom.
Elizabeth is a nature enthusiast, she is an avid hiker and enjoys taking advantage of Maine’s natural beauty and changing seasons. She enjoys beach days during summer months and at home, she loves to take care of her many plants. Spending time with friends and family is one of her favorite things to do, and looks forward to this year ahead with them by her side.
As Miss Maine USA 2022, Elizabeth is a proud representative of the state she was born and raised in. She will compete at the Miss USA national pageant during her reign, create countless new memories and relationships, and continue her passion for helping our Veterans, while continually engraining herself into the community that has her heart.
Elizabeth believes that you should always leave the world better than you found it, and her goal is to leave a lasting impact on her community, her pageant organizations, and her new found title she takes great pride in.

All beautiful things must come to an end, no matter how bittersweet.
