It was her first attempt at this title, although she had previously placed in the top 10 for Miss California Teen USA 2001. She competed as Miss City of San Diego in the pageant, which she won over one hundred contestants.

Mayer represented California in the Miss USA 2005 pageant held in Baltimore, Maryland in April 2005 and placed first runner-up to Chelsea Cooley of North Carolina. Mayer's placement was her state's highest since 1998, when Shauna Gambill also placed first runner-up. Her sister titleholder was Stephanie Brink, Miss California Teen USA 2005, who placed fourth runner-up in the Miss Teen USA 2005 pageant. These placements made California the highest placed state for 2005. Mayer crowned her successor, Tamiko Nash of North Los Angeles, in October 2005.
