~A note from Jonnie:

I truly love “all things etiquette”, whether it is respecting the U.S. Flag Code and properly honoring our country’s flag, attending a theatrical performance, dining in elegance, or simply holding a door for someone.

Growing up in the south, I was inspired by the traditional Southern hospitality, social graces, and art of fine dining that permeates the uniquely historic and festive “City of New Orleans“. 

In developing and creating the business model for The Magnolia School of Etiquette and Protocol, it was important to me that I offer something unique, educational, creative, and enjoyable for my clients and students.  I focus on quality presentation and I like to go far beyond what my clients and students expect.  Strong organizational skills,  competitive spirit, and a versatile program keep me focused on excellence.

Our classes are limited in order to communicate effectively with each individual student in an environment conducive to the subjects I teach.
