Avatar of Hope


Hope is a fifth generation native New Orleanian. To answer the question we all start with when we meet someone new in NOLA: "What's the name of ya school?" Grace King! After graduating from the University of New Orleans, she spent 7 years working in local government. She left the traditional workforce when her son was born to live her lifelong dream of being a soccer mom. Hope happily lives in Gretna (which she never thought she would say, but now can't imagine living anywhere else. #Bestbank ) She loves supporting the local art scene, crafty crap, and spending time with with her two favorite guys - her volunteer firefighter hubby & adorable son.
