Sara LaPuma Gregory

Office and Accounts Manager

I became affiliated with Trafton Academy in 1991 when my daughter joined the first grade class.  I have been employed with Trafton since 1998 as school secretary, administrative assistant, and am currently serving as Office and Accounts Manager.


I am originally from Baton Rouge and attended Louisiana State University before moving to the Independence/Hammond area.  I am married to Ronnie Gregory and have three children, Melissa LaPuma Blazevich (Trafton Class of 1999), Travis Gregory (Trafton Class of 2006), and Justin Gregory (Trafton Class of 2007).  Melissa is a veterinarian (LSU SVM Class of 2016) specializing in veterinary dentistry and oral surgery and is presently employed with Louisiana State University Veterinary School and Clinic and South Paws Veterinary Surgical Specialists in Mandeville.  Travis is employed with Marathon Petroleum Corp as a health environmental professional, and Justin is an insurance underwriter in Baton Rouge.


I enjoy welcoming prospective students and parents who are interested in joining our Trafton family.  I am always available for school tours and any questions and/or assistance that I may provide with aiding you in your decision concerning your child's education.

Thank you for your interest in Trafton!

Heather Costanza

Administrative Assistant

Although I joined Trafton's office staff on a full-time basis in February 2021, I became a part of the Trafton family many years ago when I enrolled my daughters Destin (Trafton Class of 2011) and Gracee (Trafton Class of 2014) in Trafton. I was thrilled and very honored when offered the "front desk" position in the office! 

In the past, I have enjoyed other positions such as first grade para and sixth grade para.  I have also enjoyed coaching Trafton's cheerleading organization.  Working with the students and parents of Trafton has allowed me to personally get to know many of the families. I look forward to helping our new families as they enter our wonderful school. Please contact me with any questions you may have!
