“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” -Winston Churchill
As Junior League of New Orleans’ (JLNO) Community Council Director, Alyse Mouledoux will coordinate, develop and maintain the organization’s programs, which further the mission of improving the community and advancing the wellbeing of women.
Community service has been a passion of hers since volunteering during her high school years in Baton Rouge. “I quickly realized what a rewarding experience it is,” Alyse says. “I’ve made it a part of my life ever since.” For the last nine years at JLNO, Alyse has spent most of her time as a chair of the Diaper Bank and Adult Incontinence Products committees, as well as a committee member for JLNO’s former thrift store.
Her goals for this year are to help League committees refine what are already strong projects. “This past year has allowed us to take a critical look at our priorities, and I’m excited to move forward with both lessons learned and our strategic plan in mind.”
Alyse attended College of Charleston and the University of New Orleans. She is the Director of Giving and Community Relations for the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses, where she handles the fundraising and marketing for the cultural institution of two 19th-century French Quarter homes.
As a member of JLNO, Alyse loves the dynamic volunteer experience offered. “You can choose your own path and still serve the mission through the many committees, volunteer opportunities and training options.” She also loves how far-reaching the League and its work is. “It’s amazing how often I cross paths with community partners, Sustainers and current members in my everyday life.”
A resident of Metairie, she is inspired by her fellow League members who show up day after day and consistently make time for their volunteer work. “Everyone has so much going on in their lives, and that says a lot about the value the League provides, not only to the community, but also to its members.”
Alyse and her husband, Pierre, who have known each other since infancy, have two active boys, Pierre Jr. (7) and Jean Paul (5). They attend St. Catherine of Siena, where Alyse is also a very involved mom and volunteer.
