About Us



nola family magazine (and its parent company, Fleur De Lis Publishing) was started by owner and local mom, Ann Herren, in 2006, shortly after Hurricane Katrina. We are proud to be locally founded with our content coming from our own city- New Orleans! We are especially proud of our national recognition and awards for our editorial and design, and to know that we are providing valuable and entertaining parenting information to our local parenting community, of which we (all) at nola family are a part.


Our magazine is a FREE, glossy, full color, 8-issues per year parenting resource that is locally written, with you, as a local parent, in mind. We welcome suggestions and ideas on what you as a reader would like to hear about! You can pick it up around town, or read it online ( check out our home page). Our locations are listed here.

Office Manager, Jenny Ziglin, can be reached at: Jenny (at) nolafamily (dot) com

Jenny was born and raised on the Northshore. In 2011, she met the man of her dreams and their careers soon took them to Texas. Jenny enjoyed a success in the Hospitality field working for Marriott franchise hotels in San Antonio and Austin. When she and her husband had their 1st child in 2014, there was no doubt in their mind that they wanted to live closer to family. So, in 2016, about 6 months after the birth of their 2nd child, an opportunity came along for Jenny and her family to move back home. Jenny continued a successful career in hotel management working for both Marriott and Hilton franchise hotels in Gretna and Houma before leaving the hotel life and joining the wonderful nola family team. Jenny joined the team in June and is excited for the opportunity to be part of nola family!

Durban continued her work in the arts management field in New Orleans, where she and the local boy were married in 2013. They welcomed their first child in 2016, a rambunctious baby boy.
