*I love being a DK tour guide because the people that come not only get our culture with the history that I’m able to give them ....they also get the cuisine & the cuisine gives them  the triple thread with the music.  

*I think the The best secret about New  Orleans is this fact that our hospitality is real. It’s our major commodity and what people enjoy the most. 

“My favorite dish in New Orleans is gumbo because I can’t get my mama’s gumbo no more.”

I am a New Orleans native & I love going to second lines & bc it’s a culmination of what we’ve been doing sine the 1730’, 1740’s and congregating in Congo Square.   Where we have been practicing a culture and  it becomes an economical event....Such as people vending in Congo Square since the 1730s until present day 2019... people are selling beer at the back of the truck, food off the back of the truck which is economic empowerment for the black community which only happens in New Orleans on Sundays.

The people Of New Orleans have such a "joie de vivre," which I love. My favorite place in New Orleans is the Mississippi River Front.

I love New Orleans because people celebrate life and live joyfully every day! I spent 5 years traveling the world performing in tours of musicals! I found that experiencing the people and food from each place was my very favorite thing. Now I teaches dance, voice, and theatre to kids of all ages, and get to enjoy meeting people from all places while giving tours of my favorite city on the planet, New Orleans!  



Culinary & History Storyteller (Guide Support)

Being a retired teacher, the transition from teacher to tour guide is a good fit.  My favorite thing about being a tour guide is learning about the rich beginnings of my city, passing that knowledge on to our visitors, and meeting and connecting with a variety of people. Being a part of the DK team has been a totally gratifying experience because of Julie’s leadership - always fair and generous. DK has also given me a renewed awareness of the historical origins of the restaurants, food and beverages of New Orleans.


Culinary & History Story Teller (Operations)

I worked as an outdoor educator and guide before landing in New Orleans. With a love of history, culture and people, I continue to usher and entertain guests around a place I love.

I love New Orleans because it’s colorful and fun and there is truly no place like it. My favorite place in New Orleans is - oh this is a hard one. I guess if I had to pick on place it would be City Park. But, I love driving down St. Charles or walking around Magazine Street as well. My favorite neighborhood is the Lower Garden District. The best secret about New Orleans is the amount of raw talented people that live here. They are everywhere! My favorite New Orleans dish is BBQ Shrimp because they are bathed in beer, rosemary and butter and I can use bread to soak it all up. I love being a part of DK, because everyone on our team has a rather special love of life and it shows in our hospitality!
