Ashley Coleman

Ashley Coleman Biography

Ashley Coleman (born 1981) was Miss Teen USA 1999, representing her home city of Camden and the state of Delaware. She was the first delegate from Delaware to win the national title.

Coleman won her first title, Miss Delaware Teen USA in 1998 and reigned in Delaware until she won the Miss Teen USA 1999 title at Shreveport, Louisiana on August 24, 1999. Coleman was crowned by Vanessa Minnillo of South Carolina and later gave up her title to Jillian Parry of Pennsylvania on August 26, 2000.

As Miss Teen USA, Coleman represented the Miss Universe Organization. Her "sister" 1999 titleholders were Kimberly Pressler (Miss USA, of New York) and Mpule Kwelagobe (Miss Universe, of Botswana).

Coleman graduated from Caesar Rodney High School in 1999. Prior to winning her state title, she had modelled for Tommy Hilfiger, Rite Aid and Johnson & Johnson, as well as Seventeen and Teen People.

After winning Miss Delaware Teen USA, Coleman changed her plans to attend the University of Miami and took classes at Delaware State University, completing three years toward her degree in education. Prior to completing her final year, Coleman decided to take a break and attempt to enter the entertainment industry. She moved to Los Angeles, California in 2003.

In Los Angeles, Ashley appeared on The Price is Right and pursued further modelling work. In 2006 she returned to the pageant scene, placing third runner-up to Tamiko Nash in the Miss California USA 2006 pageant. She is only the second Miss Teen USA winner not to win a state title on her first attempt (the other being Christie Lee Woods). This may be partly because she is also the first Miss Teen USA to attempt at Miss USA state pageant outside her teen-winning state.
