Heather Lee O’Keefe grew up in West Virginia, attended law school in Florida and lived in Bozeman during her reign. She was crowned Miss Montana USA on 12 September 2021 and represented Montana at the Miss USA 2022 pageant in Reno, Nevada. Heather Lee is a legal tech consultant and founder of Crypto Attorneys.
As a 25-year-old lawyer, Heather Lee successfully graduated with her Juris Doctor degree as the youngest in her class. Heather Lee is also a grief counselor for those, like herself, who have lost a parent at a young age. When she isn’t busy volunteering at the therapeutic horseback riding center, practicing law, or curating content for her small business “Haute Heatherly,” she enjoys spending time outdoors, horseback riding and hiking with her dog, FinleyJane.
The on-stage moments, the tension of the final two and the glory of the crowning, here are Heather Lee’s state pageant photos. Miss Montana USA 2021 Jami Forseth was unable to attend the 2022 pageant so Heather Lee was crowned by Miss Idaho USA 2021 Katarina Schweitzer (the pageant was held in Idaho, concurrent with Miss Idaho USA 2022).
Lights, camera, action! Professional photoshoots are one of the perks that comes from winning a title.
Heather Lee competed twice in Florida, finishing second runner-up to Monique Evans in 2020 and as a non-finalist in 2021.
