Christa Duplantis-Prather, R.N.
Member-at-Large

Christa Duplantis-Prather, is currently serving her fifth term on the Terrebonne Parish Council in representing District 5. She was elected to a term as Council Vice-Chair in 2015, and has served as Chair and Vice-Chair for most of the committees of the Council.

At the state level, she has been a President for the Police Jury Association Regions 1 and 2, and she has served as Chair and Vice-Chair for several state committees. She regularly attended the PJA Regions 1 and 2 annual meetings, and she has actively sought out ways to participate at the state conventions. At the national level, she regularly attends the National Association of Counties (NACo) annual conventions to create, share, and learn new ideas and new philosophies on the management of local governments, while also being a member of NACo’s Health Steering Committee.

Her public service does not only extend to governmental organizations, however. She is an alumni of the 2012 Class of Leadership Terrebonne and is a Board member of The Haven (an organization that aids domestic abuse victims). She participates in her district’s Neighborhood Watch Program and, in memory of her father, assists local veterans’ groups including the Regional Military Museum. As an avid animal lover, she was a strong advocate for her local government’s recent construction of a new animal shelter in her parish.

Christa currently works as a Registered Nurse. In 1991, she graduated from LSU Medical School, and, in 2006, she received her Bachelor of Science Degree also from LSU. Her talents as a healthcare professional were recognized when she was recently named as one of the "Top 100 Nurses in Louisiana.”

The daughter of the late Floyd Duplantis, former Police Juror, and the late Mrs. Robena Pertuit Duplantis, Christa is married to the love of her life, Charles Prather.

By her motto: "Live Proactive, Not Reactive”, Christa believes that we should all plan our futures to get the best results in life – not wait until a problem occurs and then stumble looking for a solution.
