About MomAngeles

What started as a way to document the best places for play dates, MomAngeles has grown into one of the top destinations for moms who want to experience the best that LA has to offer. Whether you live in LA or are just visiting, Laura Nix Gerson and her friends capture the essence of LA in their posts about where to dine, shop and experience the city of dreams.

Dear Readers,

When I moved to LA from Atlanta, I was pregnant with my daughter, and I was starting anew with friendships and ultimately, my career. I was lucky, in that my husband had a community of friends here, women who introduced me to the city, but there was so much more I needed to discover and explore on my own. I fell in love with LA. The vastness and diversity of the city, the people, the vibe and the food – oh the food in LA is wondrous! Our farm to table, sustainable food mentality is the foundation of LA’s vast foodie community. The best chefs from around the world come to LA to create culinary experiences as intricate as The Bazaar, as healthy as the Impossible Burger and as simple as the perfect taco. Our neighborhoods are rich with cultural experiences and incredible places to shop and stay. Whether it’s a family outing or a date night, there’s so much to do in LA.

LA is also the land of dreams, where entrepreneurs launch world-famous product lines, the megaliths of technology companies come to roost and where television, movies and digital media reign supreme. This site is where my love affair with everything LA is shared with you. Experience LA with me!

With Much Love and Gratitude

-Laura Nix Gerson, Founder and CEO


Moms Are Amazing

Moms are amazing. Moms make sure everything is running smoothly, that everyone’s needs are met and they make you feel loved. Moms work tirelessly to improve their schools and help in the community. Moms get up every day and pack everyone off to school, then get dressed and head to work, head to volunteer, head to run household errands and get home in time to feed and bathe everyone, get the homework done and tuck you into bed. Moms make the world safer. Moms  do it all. Moms are our heroes.

At MomAngeles, we celebrate moms and their accomplishments and contributions. We highlight the best of LA about and for moms, because moms deserve some special things just for mom…because she earned it. That’s why.

Community Commitment

We are committed to our community. We support local charities and schools! Moms spend 15+ years involved with their kids schools. It’s the center of a Mom’s and child’s universe. Recognizing this we write about and list school and education resources, school events and fundraisers, in-school and after-school programs and additional educational services like tutoring and test prep.  Have an event coming up at your school that you would like our Moms to know about? Submit it to our Event Calendar. We support local charities. Check out our list of Causes We Love.
