Summertime and the living's Big Easy! As the heat and humidity set up camp for the season, it's time to kick off another great year with the Junior League of New Orleans. We here at Lagniappe are so excited for what this next League year will bring to our members and the communities we serve, and we hope you are too! The focus of this issue is women in business – you will meet our 2018 WE Fellowship Recipients and follow up with our previous winners, learn about some fantastic female owned businesses and how to stay healthy at the office, tips and tricks for succeeding at an interview, and much more.

I have so enjoyed serving Lagniappe as Editor the past year – thanks in a large part to our wonderful team. Lagniappe is in wonderful hands next year and I cannot wait to see what the future holds!
