2014 New Orleans Top Female Achievers

We present here our annual class of top female achievers, any one of whom could have made the list in previous years. As is our tradition, in presenting our achievers we not only honor them but also hope to learn from them as they reveal mentors and offer advice. Our city is richer because of these women who were selected by our editorial staff. Future generations, we trust, will benefit because these women provided inspiration.
