Brandy Pope is a former Mrs. Virginia America 2012, as well as, a fun, loving and charismatic person! I have been married to my husband Mark for 15 years. We have three daughters ages 13, 10, and 6. I’m very involved in my church. I worked as a youth ministry leader for 7 years, as well as being a young adult ministry leader for 6 years. Being able to shape and mold the young people of my community has brought me abundant joy.

My passion for health and fitness has also allowed me to be a mentor to others regarding healthy living. Being a Beachbody coach has given me the perfect platform to help people reach their health and fitness potential! Losing my father at the age of 9 to drinking and driving has created a strong conviction within me. I want to help bring about changes that will prevent others from experiencing such tragedy. Partnering with organizations such as MADD (Mothers against Drunk Driving) was just the beginning of a lifelong effort to see resolution to this issue. I have now created my very own organization, B-YOND THE BUZZ ( www.b-yondthebuzz.org), to help provide funds for children indirectly affected by substance abuse. I want to use my platform to be the voice for those children that can’t be heard.

In my free time I enjoy singing, dancing, modeling, working out and even watching football! Above all, being able to spend quality time with my husband and children is most important to me.
