Aiken used the plight of the homeless as her platform. Her year of service as Miss America helped generate public awareness about homelessness and brought a better public understanding of this significant social dilemma.

She was initiated as a member of Delta Sigma Theta sorority at Epsilon Tau Chapter. After graduating from New York University , Aiken pursued a career in public accounting with Ernst & Young LLP, one of the Big Four accounting firms. Today, she is an image consultant and motivational speaker. A professional speaker for nearly ten years, she entertains and inspires audiences with her programs, using her varied experiences and sharing stories of overcoming obstacles, such as brain surgery. She is also a regular columnist for Pageantry Magazine , as well as a wife and mother. She is the daughter of Valerie and Charles Aiken of Columbia, SC, and the cousin of Josef Bookert. She married Haven Cockerham and has two children. .
