Moira Duggan

Born at what is now the Trader Joe’s at 25th and L Streets NW, Moira is a DC native. She is married to her love from New Orleans, and mother to the Master and Little Miss of Tottering Hall. Recently returned from a three-year tour in Texas, she learned so much from living in this foreign culture. Besides sweet friends, one of her happiest memories is reading “My First Mother’s Day” in the 2016 Listen to Your Mother San Antonio show. Back on terra firma, she and her husband are District first-time home-buyers and embarking on a renovation—so keep her in your prayers. She holds degrees from Colgate University and the London School of Economics and Political Science, which has zero bearing on day to day life with two small children. Likes: wine, college basketball, crime and police dramas, MasterChef Australia Dislikes: anyone under 30
