Lynne Douglas Hoyt wrote an article about Giselle Boone.
"My first encounter with Miss Giselle Boone was at the Miss California USA® 2012 in Palm Springs, the same year that her Teen won the title Miss California Teen USA® 2012 on her first year as a Pageant Director. Giselle Boone had expressed to me that she recognized Shelynne Hoyt's potential to win. I was impressed with her honesty. At that time, Shelynne Hoyt had another Pageant Director and my thought was she should do just fine. But she didn't. Shelynne Hoyt did not even make the tope 20 in 2012 and experienced great disappointment. But through Giselle Boone's incredible gift, her love, persistence and dedication in training Shelynne Hoyt, she built a relationship with Shelynne, which encouraged her to try again. This time, Shelynne Hoyt experienced so much personal growth and pageant knowledge. Giselle Boone is well known in the USA Pageant System and the pageant itself all over the country. This helped immensely and this time, Shelynne Hoyt succeeded and not only was a Top 20 pick at 2014 Miss California USA®, but proceeded forward to be in the Top 10 at the 2014 Miss California USA®. Thank you Giselle Boone for being the best pageant coach and pageant director."
