Sheral Kellar has been appointed director of the Office of Workers’ Compensation Administration at the Louisiana Workforce Commission.
Kellar, a licensed attorney with more than 25 years of experience in labor, employment and workers’ compensation law and most recently the workers’ compensation chief judge, will oversee the adjudication of claims under Louisiana’s workers’ compensation laws and related matters. She serves as a member of the board of directors and the curriculum committee of the National Association of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers. In July 2015, Louisiana Chief Justice Bernette J. Johnson appointed Kellar to the Louisiana State Bar Association’s Access to Justice Commission.

Wells joins the LWC team with nearly 25 years of legislative experience in both the Louisiana House of Representatives and the state Senate.
As chief financial officer, Soulier oversees the LWC Office of Management and Finance, which includes human resources and other administrative services.
