Jill Stevens wears many hats these days. She is a Utah National Guard Medic with the rank of sergeant. She is also the reigning Miss Utah and may become the next Miss America.

Sergeant Stevens will compete for the top crown on January 26, 2008. When she was first approached to compete for Miss Utah she scoffed at the idea saying that she wears combat boots, not high heels. Apparently she changed her mind and had what it takes to wear multiple hats – or crowns.

Stevens is quite accomplished. She has a nursing degree and is an experienced marathon runner. The 24 year old soldier wanted to bring substance to the crown and has used emergency preparedness as her platform. Wow.
