Mattie Denise Jackson Selecman (born June 19, 1990)
Mattie is a certified sommelier and once owned a wine bar in Nashville. She also has a degree in creative writing from the University of Tennesee. Tragically, she lost her husband of less than a year, Ben Selecman, in September 2018 after he suffered a traumatic brain injury while on vacation in Florida. Despite her grief, Mattie is pushing forward and has dedicated herself to helping others. Mattie and her friend Brooke Tometich started a venture dubbed “NaSHEville” in order to help women and children in need— specifically orphans, widows, and trafficked women.
