Author: Mads Reineke

Mads Reineke is a fourth-generation, life-long New Orleanian raised in historic Mid-City. Through a family deeply involved in the hospitality industry, Mads’ love for her hometown started young and only grew stronger. 

Living in a city so full of history and legend alike fueled her love of writing and sharing stories, propelling her to pursue a degree in Mass Communication from LSU, where she wrote for the Daily Reveille newspaper and served as an officer in the university’s chapter of PRSSA. When she isn’t writing for business, Mads can be found writing fiction, sketching, or doing crosswords camped in either her favorite coffee shop or under the oaks of City Park. Or, she’s out and about hoping to find yet another thing to love about the Crescent City.
