Mrs. Petite America 2010, Parker Sanchez

Parker strives to live by the motto: "The PURPOSE of life is to find your gift.  The MEANING of life is to give that gift away."

Parker is a professional ballroom dance instructor for Arthur Murray Franchised Dance Studios, where she travels, competes, and performs with her students, and has been recongized for her expertise at teaching newcomers.  One of the great joys of her life is sharing her love of dance with students of all ages and all walks of life.

Parker has been married to her husband Pablo, a corrections sergeant, for six years.  They reside in northern New Jersey, near both of their families.  Parker's appreciation of the courageous work done by her husband and all law enforcement officers led her to become a member of Wives Behind the Badge, a national all-volunteer non-profit organization offering moral and financial support to law enforcement families across the United States.

Additionally, Parker supports the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund, which honors peace officers through the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and the National Law Enforcement Museum, set to open in 2013.

As Mrs. Petite America 2010, Parker hopes to raise awareness of the sacrifices of law enforcement officers and their families, and to support both Wives Behind the Badge and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.
