San Francisco Socialite Anette Harris

Anette's home has a spectacular waterfront view!

Anette Harris is a San Francisco Sista Socialite that we will definitely watch this year.

Born in Houston, TX, Anette earned a BA from the University of Dallas and a MA in Boston College. She moved to San Francisco in the 70s and started working at the California College of Podiatric Medicine as Director of Admissions. She met her husband (IT Executive Marc Loupe) at a surprise party. The couple dated long distance for a year before getting married in 1979. The next year, Anette opened her own business.

Anette has served on the Board of Big Sisters of Marin, was elected president of Women Entrepreneurs of San Francisco; served on boards and committees of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce Women’s Council and the San Francisco Symphony where she focuses on raising money for the Youth Orchestra.
In 2000, Anette became the first Black president of the Junior League of San Francisco.
And if this isn’t enough, Anette is also president of the Bay Area Arthritis Auxiliary and is an active fundraiser for the Museum of the African Diaspora.

We'll keep our eyes peeled and ears to the ground for more scoop on Ms. Anette!
