Ladan's career in journalism began in high school where as Editor of Photography for the Yearbook Committee she pursued a coveted press pass to meet and photograph Bill Clinton during his second Presidential Campaign. Many of Ladan’s essays and speeches have garnered her awards, honorable mentions and, her favorite, public speaking opportunities.
With a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology, Law & Society, Ladan has used her textbook knowledge to gain first hand experience with work in print, online and broadcast journalism. Having attended hundreds of red carpet premieres and press junkets, Ladan has written newspaper and magazine articles as well as researched, written, produced and co-edited entertainment programs for several national and international outlets.
Ladan has served as the English Editor-in-Chief for two international publications, served as the English speaking newscaster for an internationally broadcast news channel, hosted an entertainment show about the latest in music and movies and hosted a fan driven web series about popular events taking place in different cities throughout the world.
With two toddlers only 15 months apart, Ladan has spent the last few years in pajama’s and a ponytail, striving to raise happy babies while functioning on coffee and just enough sleep. She has chronicled the overwhelming moments along with the abrupt changes that come with motherhood in a memoir which she hopes to publish one day soon.
With a love for adventure and travel, Ladan has, to name a few: backpacked through Europe, studied at the University of Barcelona in Spain, enjoyed the weekend long festivities of Carnaval in Brazil and re-acquainted with her family roots in Iran. It’s not surprising that she fell in love and married an Englishman and therefore travels to London regularly to visit her extended family.
With a strong background in entertainment news, Ladan specializes in writing about celebrities, movies, music and events. As an active, stay at home mom, she is also well read and passionate about parenting books, perspectives and styles. Ladan is also on her way to becoming a certified gym instructor and can lead you towards a new life of healthy eating and 'killer abs.'
Reading, creative writing, traveling, celebrity news, fitness and healthy living. Ladan loves being a mom and watching her girls grow: One loves soccer, memory games, difficult puzzles, and colors with an eye of a true artist. The other nurtures her many babies and animals, tends to loved ones with her doctor's kit when they are feeling sick, and will talk their head off with gibberish and a million questions! Their innocent smiles, their loving hugs and kisses, and their unconditional love is worth more than anything else in the world.
