Miss Delaware USA 2019
Miss Delaware USA 2019
Jolisa is 23 years old, from Middletown, Delaware, who has earned dual degrees from the University of Delaware – a Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Design with her Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science. A landscape design assistant at an internationally-renowned ornamental garden, Longwood Gardens, Jolisa plans for Longwood’s five seasons of landscape beauty and manages projects that require expertise in marketing, horticulture and landscape design.
Jolisa’s passion for the environment and horticulture comes from her upbringing in the Poconos where she was constantly interacting with nature and the outside world. As she grew older, she recognized the gap between the natural environment and inner city spaces and wanted to bridge that gap. As an Environmental Intern for Disney, Jolisa traveled on environmental service trips to Greece, Costa Rica, Thailand and Myanmar. Now fully entrenched in the career of her dreams, she also serves as a Board member for Healthy Foods For Healthy Kids (HFHK), a nonprofit organization that starts school-based community gardens and provides curricula and hands-on learning experiences to students. Through her work with HFHK, Jolisa hopes to be instrumental in building a community garden in every public school in Delaware, one school at a time
As Miss Delaware USA 2019, Jolisa will use this platform to educate Delaware’s youth on the various career opportunities within horticulture, with the goal of ensuring Delaware’s future will continue to be green!
When she isn’t outdoors making the world a more beautiful place to live, Jolisa can be found jetskiing, boating, working on tech projects, or playing the snare drums. Jolisa looks forward to representing the beautiful state of Delaware at the nationally televised Miss USA pageant live on Fox.
