Elise Banks brought home the crowning glory when she was crowned during the Texas International Pageant, held March 15th at the Granville Arts Center in Dallas. As Miss Texas International 2015, Elise will continue working with her platform, "Healthy Mind, Successful Life," to help others understand the power they have to create mental health and to help remove the stigma of asking for help. Ms. Banks works with middle- and high-school-aged students to give them tools for effectively coping with common teen stressors, to help further her goal of encouraging others to develop healthy lifestyles that contribute to mental health. Elise completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Baylor University and then graduated with honors from the University of Houston, where she obtained her master’s degree in Counseling. She is a counseling therapist and works in both private practice and at a psychiatric hospital in Houston. During her reign as Miss Texas International Elise’s main goal will be to bring more awareness about mental health issues and focusing on helping individuals lead a productive and healthy lifestyle. She is presently collaborating with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) on their Stamp Out the Stigma Campaign and is a voluntary spokesperson for American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Campaign. Ms. Banks is a native Texan and a member of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, where she served as a volunteer in the children's ministry.
