Mrs. United States 2008-

Dr. Gariane Phillips Gunter

A South Carolina beauty with brains! A third-year psychiatry resident at Palmetto Health. A part-time Baptist Sunday school teacher, who's minister predicted she'd win the pageant. As did, her husband and high school sweetheart, who was there to cheer her on in Las Vegas. But it was her 2 1/2 year old daughter that ran up to her and quickly wanted her attention on stage!

Her platform, as a psychiatrist will be to educate and attempt to reduce the negative stigma attached to mental illness. Her request is that if you or someone needs help, please visit or go to your local mental health agency.

  2. Dr. Gunter is even more beautiful of a human being on the inside than the stunning beauty outside. Thank you Dr. Gariane for proving that brains, beauty, compassion and kindness can be a package deal.
