Edwina Brown

Runway Coach, Backstage Coordinator

Edwina has been modeling since 2010. While modeling is a large part of her life, she has been moving into production work as well.
"I started with Chance in December of 2010, just thinking modeling would be a hobby. One show a month turned into one show every month; shoots. Winning Model of the Month for Twala Coggins and ultimately, winning the "Model of the Year award" in 2012. This was a turning point for me. I had reached the highest award that Chance offers, what else can I do to help this amazing organization thrive? Slowly I started working with Ryan and his team with running rehearsals for shows and backstage management. " Now Edwina can be found hosting rehearsals Wednesdays for the show and being the backstage Manager during shows. While she occasionally gets asked to model; she has found her niche on the production side of things. Edwina lives in the Greater Seattle area and originally from Holland. She still speaks Dutch fluently and hopes to one day bring Chance to Holland for a one off show!
