By winning the pageant, JoEllen wants to become a spokesperson of the issue that is very close to her heart, which is the disposal of prescription medicine. She is currently focusing on opioid abuse and the safety of the environment. JoEllen wants to educate people on how to dispose of prescription medicine without causing harm to the environment, an idea that she got when her grandmother, who suffered from a foot injury, asked her how to dispose of the medicine that she did not require any more.

Upon winning, JoEllen took to her social media to announce the news and wrote, “Sometimes when things take longer than you thought they would, it’s just a gentle reminder that you have more time than you thought and that there’s a journey to enjoy. I’m ecstatic about this journey to Miss USA and the opportunity to represent the most beautiful state!”
