Although born in Rayne, Louisiana, the "Ghost Lady", Kasey Gilbert Clark, moved to Texas and lived in the Houston area for 35 years. During this time, she developed an interest in ghosts and the paranormal. After receiving her Bachelor's Degree in Business from Western Governor's University, she turned her ghost hunting hobby into a thriving business, Haunted Houston Tours, in July 2010. Her new venture soon gained the attention of the local media in Houston, Texas where she has been featured on news stations, local newspapers and magazines each year. Upon her return to Lafayette, Louisiana in April 2013, she was saddened that similar tours were not offered in the area despite Lafayette's rich history. This inspired her to create a sister company, Haunted Lafayette Tours based in Lafayette, Louisiana. In addition to owning and operating Haunted Lafayette Tours, she continues to actively manage her Houston Company, Haunted Houston Tours, with the assistance of an experienced staff, office manager, and customer service department from Lafayette, Louisiana. Not only is the "Ghost Lady" a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, operating 2 businesses in 2 states in 2 cities, she is an accomplished paranormal investigator, historian, webmaster, website designer, genealogist, and author with her first book scheduled for publication sometime in 2014.
The "Ghost Lady" being of Cajun descent gives her historical ghost tours with a quaint Cajun flair.
