I moved to New Orleans and began working for Loyola University New Orleans in 1992. One of my favorite things about New Orleans is Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras to me means the opportunity to see friends, share in the city’s collective celebration and take time to reflect on the joys of life in New Orleans.
As a member of a krewe (one of the parading organizations), I have the unique ability to share the joys of living in New Orleans with thousands of visitors from around the globe. Carnival season is one of the attributes that make New Orleans a unique and special place. I encourage you to discover New Orleans for yourself.
