Our Team


LAURA NIX GERSON, FOUNDER, PUBLISHER, EDITOR Laura launched MomAngeles because when her daughter was little, she was planning a lot of playdates and her friends kept asking her where to go and what to do. So it seemed easier just to put it all online in one place. Little did she know it would lead to what is today MomAngeles.  A transplant from the South by way of Atlanta, she is constantly discovering new things about this city as she and her husband and daughter have truly taken to the CA lifestyle. Her passion for all things LA fuel this site. In a previous life Laura was a publicist, event marketer and web producer….oh wait, she still is.

She has launched numerous start-ups and worked as a Business Development consultant, helping companies grow audiences, expand their marketing reach and attain new clients. Laura is also a co-founder of Métier,  a career resource for women. Laura is also a contributing writer for Modern Mom and Babble and formerly with CBS Local Los Angeles and Hollywood Hot Moms.  To submit something for editorial consideration (no events – use  Submit an Event) email her at laura AT momangeles.com.  Follow her @lauranixgerson.

Her very active kids have now given her the additional title of Hockey Mom and Golf Mom which is why often you’ll see things about golf appearing on this site.
