Francisco and I must have met 30 to 40 wonderful ladies, mostly titleholders and models from top modeling agencies from South Florida. The moment we saw Jana, we fell in love. She was tall, fit and had an angelic heavenly face, she was going to be my Vanessa Williams. We immediately ran to her side, started talking to her, and discovered that besides being beautiful, she was friendly, kind, down to earth and did I mention gorgeous.
We became friends, and Jana became the face of Franovik Designs.
Because of Jana, we became the official costume designers for the Miss Earth United States organization for the following three years. The organization flew us out to the different pageant locations and Jana was right by our side. On the Las Vegas trip, we were together most of the time; she was the current titleholder, so she could not be around the contestants; so we hung out.
We did the first fashion show for Miss Earth and Miss Teen Earth and since I had a professional photographer, Don Seidman there, we did editorial photo shoots around at the hotel and areas. Miss Earth was our second pageant system where we were official designers.
Among our conversations we found out Jana is quite the celebrity, she has several beauty titles under her sequin belt, she is a model, and was on a TV newscast (previous traffic girl) in her state and to top it all off, a Doctor of Physical Therapy. It does not get any better than that. Jana is a traveling therapist so she goes where she is needed.
She works in a variety of practice settings across the country from hospitals to nursing homes, to private practices. She assists in rehabilitating people after surgery, those who have had heart attacks and strokes, orthopedic injuries, and any other ailments. Jana's fulfillment comes from investing time and expertise into people who truly need her help and seeing them overcome their physical debilities and get back into a normal life day to day routine. Her patience and kind heart make physical rehabilitation the perfect profession for her.
Despite all she does with her very demanding job, she still manages her time to support our causes, fashion shows, TV engagements, photo shoots and important events.
Jana has been involved and included in many of FRANOVIK’s most influential shows, fundraisers, magazine articles and events. Most of the shows included Green Fashion Miami, Elements of Green Funkshion 2010, Million Dollar Diamond show, Funkshion-Elements of Green 2011 and 2012. Jana has been included in magazines like Nuvia Rose International, Bayfront/Icon, HerLife, Broward Lifestyles, Keel Magazine, Lucky Magazine, just to mention a few.
Jana has been on NBC6 South Florida Today, Univision, and Hola TV and soon to be involved with our upcoming event on September 28, where Franovik gives back on our 5th year anniversary.
Everyone she comes in contact with immediately loves her, other titleholders and models too. They want to be her. Lately, she has been involved with her own pageant, Miss Essence. Now she is also preparing her wedding in June. You know, we are designing her wedding dress.
Thinking back and quite frankly, we have been blessed with many beautiful, professional, exciting women in our lives, but what can I say about this incredible and supportive woman besides “She’s our IT GIRL” the face of Franovik and we want to Thank her for being there for us and also being an inspiration to us all.I hope we continue to work together regardless of Jana getting married…..Congratulations Jana....
