JEANNINE HARRIS- CO-OWNER, BUYER
Jeannine grew up in New Orleans and received degrees from Nicholls State University in both nutrition and education. As a wife, mother, high-school teacher, Nonna, quilter, embroiderer and
grand-children clothing designer, who would have imaged that would also lead to bridal store owner? When her youngest daughter’s bridal boutique was only a few years established, Jeannine and Alan joined forces to launch MaeMe into a more successful, family-owned and operated, Christian focused business.
Jeannine’s expertise in sewing and design supported an organic opportunity to expand MaeMe’s alterations department into MaeMe’s second location, The Alteration Shoppe. Focusing on bridal and special occasion alterations, The Alteration Shoppe is the leader in bridal alterations in the area.
Jeannine balances her time between family, MaeMe, The Alteration Shoppe, her 3 acre property, and sewing with her friends. Her 5 grandchildren keep her pretty busy, too!
