Mee Jean is a mom of three who is married to her high school sweetheart. They met at the high school they both attended in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia and married in July 2004. Mee Jean holds a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from the University of Georgia while her husband, Greg, graduated from The University of South Carolina (House Divided!). Together, they have three children: Alyssa (8), Jacob (7) and Isaac (1). Mee Jean moved to Columbia in 2002. Once wondering how she could live in a small town, she now embraces it and loves her home in Blythewood. She is a marketing analyst at BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and loves being involved in the community and making Columbia the best place for her kids to grow up in. As a current classmate in the Leadership Columbia Class of 2017, she has learned so much about Columbia. Mee Jean loves going to local events with her family like the Soda City Farmers Market, Crawfish Festival and Vista Lights to name a few. She also enjoys supporting local businesses around the city. Mee Jean loves hanging out with her girlfriends (for dinner or brunch or bunco), reading, watching Georgia football, running races (whether it be 5ks or Spartans), taking pictures and making memories (lots of selfies and hashtags), shopping, relaxing with some wine by the pool and sleeping.
