NEW WEBSITE! Visit www.katesnovak.com to stay up-to-date!


I’ve noticed a bunch of new views lately on this page, which is just awesome! Thank you so much for your interest in my role as a state titleholder.  

For those who aren’t as familiar with pageantry, there are multiple systems with which to compete and earn titles. For example, most people are familiar with Miss USA and Miss America. These are two different pageant systems for unmarried women, which means a different woman wears each crown each year.

I cherished my experience as Mrs. Pennsylvania America 2015 and my time at Mrs. America.  It shaped a large part of who I am as I journey forth in pursuit of another title in a different pageant system.

With that said, please check out my new website, www.katesnovak.com to continue following me on my path in pageantry and service.  Kateschartelnovak.com will remain accessible, however, it will no longer be updated.

I also have a new Facebook page! Please take a moment to visit and "like" it.

As always, big thanks to everyone who has ever supported me in any way through all of my endeavors.

Very quickly...

I am posting my sincere appreciation to Sophia Young of Say Creative Photography for updating my ad page for the Mrs. America program book.  Additional thanks to Fred Wright for his support as director of the 2015 pageant, Joanne Egan Bauer for her unwavering support of all of my endeavors (check out Joanne Jackson for a Better Lehigh County to stay up to date on her bid for Lehigh County Commissioner), Just Born, Inc. for providing Goldenberg's Peanut Chews to each delegate as my gift from Pennsylvania, and Pamela Ptak, owner of Arts and Fashion Institute for custom-fitting my Rachel Allan gown obtained through Norieta Stephanos of My Crowning Closet!  Last but not least, my amazingly supportive husband, Raymond Novak and his parents (owners of Novak Pheasantry) and of course the children, Aubrey & Courtney.

Joyfully,
KSN

My main focus for the next month and a half will be preparation for nationals and then the national Mrs. America pageant itself.  Some future events have been included in the listing above, so hopefully I will be back to post some favorite photos.  Also remember that the Fabulous Face contest is still occurring and a vote for me is one step closer to securing a spot in the semi-finals at Mrs. America, plus it supports Mrs. America's charities of choice:  Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.  I appreciate everyone's support, no matter the capacity; I am eternally grateful even for positive thoughts sent my way!

Joyfully,
KSN
