Kennetra Searcy - NFL Wife, Mother, Certified Personal Trainer, Emerging Business Woman, Goodwill Ambassador to the Republic of Sierra Leone & Ms. Black USA 2017
Kennetra is a 27 year old fitness enthusiast and graciously wears many shoes. At an early age, she was a track and field rockstar. She continued to excel as a high-school student athlete, which afforded her the opportunity to be granted a full scholarship to attend college. After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Kennetra obtained her Master’s degree from Canisius College in New York, and utilized this achievement as a catalyst to further power her passion–help others to live a healthier lifestyle.
Kennetra resides in Houston, Texas with her husband, a professional football player and their 2 year old daughter. She is the ultimate role model and a modern day She-ro!
Kennetra lives by the mantra, “that if I can help someone as I pass along; if I can cheer someone with a word or song; if I can show someone that he or she is traveling wrong, then my living shall not be in vain.”
As Ms. Black USA 2017, Kennetra spends her reign advocating on behalf of causes such as The Heart Truth, the national platform of Miss Black USA Organization to raise awareness of heart disease, the #1 killer of women, Play Like A Girl, and serves as a Goodwill Ambassador to the Republic of Sierra Leone
