Dear Abigail,
We believe we have correctly identified your Treehopper as
Entylia carinata, based on this image posted to BugGuide.  According to BugGuide, they feed on:  “various herbaceous plants, especially Asteraceae” and “Commonly seen to be attended by ants” which form a symbiotic relationship with plant sucking insects like Aphids and Treehoppers because the Ants feed on the honeydew secreted by many free-living Hemipterans.
