Adams is working as a professional model. Her experience includes photoshoots, promotional modeling, music video shoots, bikini competitions. She was a Top 10 Finalist for Miss Nevada 2014 and first Runner-Up at Miss Arizona 2015.

While Nevada did well in the early years of the Miss USA pageant, they only placed once from 1987 to 2000. This streak was broken by Gina Giacinto’s finalist placing in Miss USA 2001.
