Bryan Hodnett

Originally from a Baton Rouge suburb. LSU Fighting Tiger alumni. I have lived on the Northshore (Mandeville area) for 8 years and love it. Tons of activities – both outdoor and indoor (expanding food and drink scene).

Meet Bryan Hodnett

My fiancé Emily is a lifelong resident of the area and we both intend to make this our “forever location.” I’m a golf enthusiast and also love to cook. Any and all types of food! I am a board member of a few great non-profits in the area. The one nearest to my heart is Family Promise of St. Tammany which is a faith based non-profit that helps homeless families find permanent housing and employment.
