For almost her entire life Adair (Moffett) Reese has called Nebraska her home.  Currently residing in Grant, Nebraska with her husband, Jason and two children, Ava (14) and Alec (12); the couple owns and operates Reese Mechanical, INC, Reese Appliance, along with Brick and Mortar. Along with these business Adair is a Youth Market Director for the American Heart Association.  She strives to make an impact in improving the health of adults and children by inspiring the students in the 58 counties she covers in Nebraska. 

In 2014, Adair was inspired to compete in the Mrs. Nebraska pageant by her mother. While a crown was not won that night, it ignited a passion for meeting more accomplished women in the state.  At the 2019 Mrs. Nebraska pageant Adair was not only crowned Mrs. Nebraska she also won the swimsuit award and evening gown.  

The journey had just begun with more than 50 appearances achieved between April 2019 to August 2019! Ensuring she held true to her promise to touch as many of the 93 counties in Nebraska as possible. In August, Adair attended the Mrs. America pageant. During the nine days in Las Vegas the experiences where some that are a “once in a lifetime” kind! One of those experiences was getting the title of Mrs. Congeniality, which is one that is voted on by the other contestants. 

Adair will stand as the longest reining Mrs. Nebraska with her title being held for almost 17 months.  She was extremely excited to be asked to step up as a Co-Director of the Mrs. Nebraska America & Miss Nebraska for America pageant with the resignation of Deanna Hayes. She will begin her new journey along side Mrs. Nebraska 2017 Sarah Christianson.
