Mrs. Tulsa International crowned Mrs. Oklahoma International

Congratulations to Rachel Roberts who was crowned Mrs. Oklahoma International 2009 on Saturday night!

As Mrs. Tulsa, Roberts has promoted her platform of postpartum depression awareness, and she will continue to promote it as Mrs. Oklahoma International and if she wins the International crown (which I certainly believe she will!).

Roberts' personal journey with postpartum depression has enabled her to speak and reach out to mothers of all ages, most recently at the Margaret Hudson Program for teenage mothers.

“I was fortunate enough to recognize that I wasn’t feeling myself after having my daughter,” she says. “I want to help other women recognize and overcome this illness.”

Roberts will represent Oklahoma on July 17 and 18 when she competes for the title of Mrs. International at the North Shore Performing Arts Center in Chicago, Illinois.
