Mrs. Hulsey is a native of Cordele, Ga., and Roswell, Ga. She has lived in Brunswick and the Golden Isles since 1996, and became a passionate supporter of Wolfson Children’s Hospital when her son Ben was diagnosed prenatally with a severe and rare congenital heart defect.
MeMe and her husband, Mike Hulsey, have four sons and she currently enjoys her role as a stay-at-home mother. Previously, Mrs. Hulsey served as director of Institutional Advancement for Coastal Georgia Community College and the Foundation. Prior to that, she served as assistant vice president and director of Marketing and Public Relations for First Georgia Bank and United Community Banks.
