If you’ve visited the boutique on a Saturday, you’ve probably met Alan at the front door! His professional journey began a little differently than pretty dresses and “say yes to the dress”photo moments. Alan was born and raised in New Orleans and graduated from Tulane University with Bachelor degrees in both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. Following graduation, he received his Officer Commission into the United States Navy, earning the rank of Lieutenant in the submarine force. Alan is a licensed professional engineer, and spent over 30 years in the energy industry, founding Oak Tree Technical Consulting in 2011.
In addition to his extensive and impressive engineering career, Alan has also become an expert in the bridal industry as a leader in technology implementation, process management, and fiscal evaluations and applications. He is a Goldman Sachs 10k Small Business Leader graduate, Better Bridal Group presenter at industry seminars, and is creating applications for bridal owners to assist in buying and analytics.
On Sundays, Alan enjoys woodworking in his 1200 square foot workshop, home remodeling, and any outdoor project involving his tractor.
