Colette Novak

Senior Development Manager

Meet Colette

Colette is excited to join the YSC staff as Senior Development Manager. She has a background in management and event planning, primarily for music nonprofits including Emmanuel Music and the Cantata Singers in Boston, Mass. Her experience includes planning and coordinating large-scale concerts and fundraising events, managing budgets and finances, assisting with development campaigns and overseeing staff and board members.


Colette relocated to Atlanta from Boston this fall, and is excited to make the transition into healthcare at YSC. She is inspired by YSC's passion and dedication to the organization's mission of positive impact and empowerment - a similar kind of passion that originally drew her to the arts. She received a Bachelor of Musical Arts with an Emphasis in Business from DePauw University, and enjoys hiking, rowing and playing the oboe in her free time.

My favorite thing to do to relax…

sitting outside with a good book.

Something many people don’t know about me…

I love rowing and wish Atlanta had more water so I could still be on a crew team!
