A Buffalo, NY girl turned Cajun Queen.
I'm the founder and president of CarlaMedia LLC, a media company based in New Orleans that creates digital and social content for local restaurants and businesses. Carla's Kitchen is my digital show that highlights local restaurants in the New Orleans area. I'm a local food judge and BestFoodFeed contributor.
My passion for curiosity started at a very young age when I began creating videos. I turned that passion of storytelling into my career. I love traveling, learning new cultures, meeting new people and telling those stories along the way. I moved to Chicago for college where I earned a Broadcast Journalism for TV degree at Columbia College Chicago.
I'm an award-winning journalist who has worked many roles in TV news: reporter, weather anchor, traffic anchor, news anchor and host. Previously, I was the Morning News Anchor at the ABC affiliate in New Orleans (WGNO), the Morning Weather/Traffic Anchor at the NBC affiliate in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (WVLA), and started my career as the Morning News/Weather Anchor at the NBC affiliate in Joplin, Missouri (KSN16).
At all three stations, I took my love of food to create a weekly restaurant segment. In each episode, I showcase a local hidden gem restaurant in the area. Also, I produced a live cooking segment called “What’s Carla Cooking?” on KSN Local News Today.
I love embracing the Southeast Louisiana culture. Catch me checking out new restaurants around town and judging the amazing food festivals New Orleans has to offer. I love fishing, cooking, playing volleyball, working out and going to the park with my dog, Teddy. Please follow me on social media and Youtube to stay connected!
