Shantelle Maier is a proud and loving mother of two, passionate about creating positive change in her local community and hopes to inspire women, in particular mothers from around the country.
At 30 years of age, she already has a long history of being involved in the pageant world. Shantelle started her journey as a Miss Galaxy Australia contestant, being drawn back every year by the exciting opportunities, challenges and sisterhood on offer. In 2019, Shantelle secured the 1st runner up sash in her first year in the Mrs Galaxy category and left with not only pride but incredible friends that will last a lifetime. With more determination, hard work and passion in her heart Shantelle returned to the stage and took out her dream title in 2020.
Shantelle uses her pageant platform as a catalyst to empower women of all ages to reach for the stars. She is an advocate for self-love and body confidence, inspiring wives and mothers to be the best versions of themselves and to remember we are all queens in our own right.
She is also dedicated to raising awareness and funds for a number of important charities including dog rescue and animal welfare groups, environmental organisations and cancer support services. Shantelle has supported, donated or volunteered for over 20 not for profit organisations in the past few years and this is something she will passionately continue to do, creating a ripple effect in the community.
Shantelle is a wonderful role model to her two young sons, inspiring them to grow up to be kind and compassionate and knowing that they can achieve anything they put their minds to.
