Mrs. Putnam County has been named by the Mrs. New York America Organization, and this year’s honor goes to Laura Rudovic Waters of Mahopac, NY. She is a 30 year old mother of two boys, Christopher, 4 and Brandon, 2. Laura and her husband Steve Waters, a firefighter for the FDNY in Jackson Heights, Queens, found love at first sight and have now been married for 5 years. Laura is not only a wife and mother, but she is also an entrepreneur. A career fashion designer, store owner and business manager, she is the owner of Laura’s Boutique, a new shop in Kent, NY which carries glamorous fashions at half the price of upscale stores.
Laura will be traveling to Rochester, NY at the end of October to compete for the Mrs. New York State title. The Mrs. America pageant is a pageant system for married women that has been around since 1977. Should she win the Mrs. America Title, Laura will then compete in the international Mrs. World pageant. It is a tremendous honor to participate, made especially satisfying knowing just how active she is a mother and business owner. Laura loves to spend time with her sons and it is her number one favorite pastime. She also loves being a wife. When she is not with her family, she loves to design clothes. Fashion is her passion. She is looking forward to getting involved in her community and to start attending events as Mrs. Putnam County.
She is passionate about helping people and is currently holding a charity fashion show to benefit the A Skate Foundation, Therapy on Wheels for Children with Autism at the Coliseum in White Plains on October 3rd. Laura’s Glamorous Fashion Show will feature designs from her couture line. Celebrities have already signed up to attend. For tickets, visit www.boutiquelauras.com.
