My name is Ellen Hopper Clements, a New Orleans native, I now proudly call Lafayette my home! I love working and volunteering in the community but can’t wait to come home and spend time with my boys, Charlie and Andy. I met my husband, Fletcher, in 2013 while I was working on my Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcast Journalism at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. When I met him I immediately knew that my life would never be boring again, and I was so right!
