She is the former Executive Director of Volunteers for Youth Justice and is also a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer, a member of the Judicial Advisory Committee on FINS (Families in Need of Services), a member of the Ad Hoc Louisiana Commission on Juvenile Justice 2002, and a member of Community Coalition to Reduce Juvenile Gun Violence. Ciaravella additionally served on the Board of Directors for the American Heart Association, the Parenting Coalition, the Mental Health Association and the Young Women’s Christian Association. In 2003 she was certified as Civil and Family Mediator.


Judge Morrison was selected by the Supreme Court of Louisiana to succeed Judge Robin M. Giarrusso. He was elected to the 21st Judicial Court bench in 1988 and is the Chief Judge. From 1998-1999 Morrison served as president of the Louisiana District Judges Association and he currently serves as the Legislative Chair of the association. He also serves as Chair of the Committee to Evaluate Requests for New Trial Court Judgeships and he is a member of the Louisiana Budgetary Control Board and the Judges Supplemental Compensation Fund Committee.


The Judiciary Commission was created by the Louisiana Constitution, and as such, it is not a
Board or Commission subject to a particular branch of government.
