A 70th Birthday Celebration! (Cake will served!)
And Reflections on 28 Years Living in France…From Survival to Success in the City of Light!
Join Adrian as she reflects on the last 28 years of living in France and how she got to where she is today…from moving to France on a whim with her family, through a challenging divorce that left her virtually penniless, to finding her true path helping people create their own new and best lives in France.
Adrian Leeds was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. She attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and spent a year on a kibbutz in Israel before settling into family life and building her career—first in Knoxville, Tennessee, then in Los Angeles, California. She has more than 21 years of experience in marketing and public relations—first with Levi Strauss & Company, then with television station promotion, broadcast sales, media buying, and advertising. In 1994, she moved to Paris with her family for a one-year “sabbatical”…and never left.
Adrian has a passion for writing and publishes three online publications a week (since 2001!): Monday and Wednesday’s Nouvellettres®, and French Property Insider, which all have a large following. She created the first online Paris restaurant guide in 1996, Adrian Leeds’ Top 100 Cheap Insider Paris Restaurants (no longer available), and is currently working on a memoir about how she carved out her dream life in France from nothing but a little resourcefulness—and a lot of chutzpah.
