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.

Durban Zaunbrecher

Account Executive, Durban Zaunbrecher can be reached at: durban at nolababy.com

Born and raised in Fairview, North Carolina, Durban moved to New Orleans in 2004 to attend Tulane University, where she fell in love with both the city and a local boy. After spending a few years in New York and Washington, D.C., growing her career in retail and arts management, the pull of New Orleans became too strong to resist! 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. Durban is excited to bring her creative background and new parent mindset to the fabulous nola family team!
