About

We forget the ordinary and remember the exceptional and special...

Clandestine was created 5 years ago by our Founder, Kelley Troia. Kelley moved to New Orleans a little over 8 years ago after spending 20+ years in the corporate world in places like New York, San Francisco, D.C., and Bentonville, AR.

The majority of Kelley’s past experience was in the online start-up space beginning as a web developer in the early 90’s and then as a project and operations manager at businesses like CMPnet, Music Boulevard and CDNow. Prior to New Orleans, Kelley spent 8-1/2 years with Walmart – first at Walmart.com in Brisbane, CA and then as the Sr. Director of Marketing Operations for Walmart Stores in Bentonville, Arkansas.

With Clandestine, Kelley has leveraged her operational know-how with her love for New Orleans and her desire to help outside guests experience that “Only in New Orleans” moment.
