Jenn DuranJennifer was the single most popular name for newborn American girls every single year from 1970 to 1984! I’m not surprised. So this Jennifer (Jennifer Walker) would like to introduce you to another Jennifer (Jennifer Duran) who is on our Sales Team for Baby & Child Fest (five years with New Orleans Baby & Child Fest and two years with Northshore Baby & Child Fest).

Jennifer Courtade Duran is a Nola native who moved back in 2011 after living in New York for about a decade. Jennifer is a mom to two adorable girls. Olivia is 8 and Audrey, 3.

As Sales Representative for Northshore & New Orleans Baby & Child Fest, Jennifer says, “I enjoy recruiting vendors that I actually use, such as Olivia’s dancing school and Jazzercise and I love discovering so many other businesses that offer great services for families like mine.”

After graduating from Mount Carmel Academy and the University of Southern Mississippi, Jennifer moved to New York to pursue a career in the performing arts. She met her husband shortly after moving to New York City and she worked as a professional actor for many years before starting a family.

In addition to being a mom and working with Baby & Child Fest for the past five years, Jennifer is also co-owner of Paw-Get Me Nots. They design and sell Nola inspired dog/cat collars and leashes to retailers all over the New Orleans metro area.

Meet Our Team – Sarah Daigle

Sarah Daigle

Sarah Daigle, wife, mom and Madisonville resident, recently joined our sales team for Northshore Baby & Child Fest. She lives in Madisonville with her husband Patrick, a Covington native & St. Paul’s grad, and their 19-month-old son, Nolan. Sarah and Nolan are very active in the community and enjoy spending time at the Covington Farmer’s Market, Little Gym, Soccer Tots, St. Tammany Parenting Center, Mandeville/Covington/Madisonville Library for story time and Northshore Gymnastics to name a few! You might also run into them out shopping where they are regulars at Baby and Me, Baby’s Corner and Fashion for Kids.

Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself, Sarah? High school, college, “free time”?

I’m from River Ridge, Louisiana and went to Ursuline Academy High School. I followed my love for running and joined the track and cross country team at Samford University my first year of college. I left Samford to chase another passion of mine, Culinary, at Nicholls State University where I met my husband.

Pre-kids I worked for New Orleans Magazine in sales and loved it! I am currently a nanny for a precious 2-year-old boy and a beautiful 9-year-old girl. I love kids and adore being a mom. In my “free” time you can find me in the kitchen baking cookies, cupcakes and cakes!
