Elizabeth Jordahn Hudson, a Poolville, Texas native and 2014 graduate of Malvern High School, has worked at Henri’s Minerva for nearly two years. Liz, or “Ellie May” as she is affectionately called around the office, moved to Ohio with her parents and little brother in June 2013. But before that, Liz attended prom as a sophomore, junior, and senior in high school.

Because of her outstanding customer service and specialization in the plus size prom department, this once seasonal employee has been brought on as a full time member of the Henri’s family.

Since then, Liz has helped hundreds of girls find the dress of their dreams and has recently been busy learning the ins-and-outs of the shipping and receiving department.

“Honestly, it was horrible. It was hard to find plus size dresses that looked good. That’s what I love about doing what I do now. That girl who struggles with the way she looks? I make her look and feel pretty.”

“The atmosphere. We’re always joking around and laughing. And it makes me happy to know that these girls, some of them have gone to a ton of other places looking for a dress, and I was able to help them find exactly what they wanted. “
