Editor's Note: Springing Ahead


This is always one of my favorite issues of the year. I love our women’s issue. I love sharing the incredible things women business leaders are doing in Southeast Louisiana all year long, but it’s especially excited to have a full issue devoted to it.

We’re so excited to have the indomitable Ti Martin gracing our cover this month. It’s hard to believe it’s been a full year since we lost her dear mother, Ella Brennan. Martin shares with us her mother’s dream of making New Orleans “the Paris of America,” and how she’s taken up this dream. With NOCHI in full swing and restaurants continuing to pop up all over the city every moment, it certainly feels like we’re on our way.

Looking ahead a bit, we’re in the process now of putting together this year’s class of New & Notables for our July issue. Every year we highlight professionals who are taking bold leaps to push our region forward in every industry. Every year we’re inundated with suggestions and its always a hard decision, but as a region it’s a great problem to have.

Finally, between Mother’s Day and graduations at every academic level, May is always a month of celebrations. Congratulations to all the graduates and to all the moms out there, may you receive even half the spoiling that you so richly deserve.


Happy Reading,
