Duchess of Texas Gemini XXXIII,
Anita Jordan Seggelink, was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. After graduating from Fair Park High School, she attended Louisiana State University graduating with honors with majors in foreign languages and international marketing. Anita spent the majority of her career outside of Louisiana, working as a paralegal for national and international law firms in the areas of tax, patent and civil litigation. She retired in 2018. She stays busy caring for her sweet, 94 year old Mama and a rambunctious, ball playing border collie mix named Reno. Anita loves traveling, swimming, reading, cooking, listening to country music, binge watching her favorite TV shows, and sipping red wine on her patio at the end of a busy day. But most of all, she loves LSU Tigers football.
Anita joined the Krewe of Gemini in 2018 and enjoys being a member of and riding on the Title Float, “Float Funtastic”. Anita is honored to represent the Krewe of Gemini and serve as the Duchess of Texas for Gemini XXXIII. After the past year, Anita hopes that all Krewe members take the opportunity to celebrate the spirit of community and the traditions of Mardi Gras and spread that spirit throughout the Ark-La-Tex.
