Marlee Pittman was born and raised in Mid City and has been an active advocate for the community for years. Currently serving on Mid City Merchants and Mid City Gras’ Board of Directors and as leader of the Mid City Committee, an alliance of Mid City neighborhoods, she serves as a bridge between several community groups making the heart of the city better. Her strong relationships with local partners and city leaders make her an invaluable part of many community development initiatives, while her marketing, website design, communications strategies and public relations experience ensure the entire organization is more successful.
She graduated from Louisiana State University’s Ogden Honors College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science as a nationally recognized Truman Scholar before moving to Washington DC for a career in public policy. She returned to her hometown after the 2016 floods to work in community development, and has since served as an ardent supporter of all things Mid City.
