New Orleans-born, Louisiana native, and media personality Amy Sins has played many roles over the course of her professional journey. She wants to do it all - help people, feed people, teach, cook, write, inspire, and travel. Through a superhuman level of energy, a deep well of empathy, and the inability to accept the word "no," she's accomplishing all that and more.

Her determination to "pay it forward" after losing everything when the levees failed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, this self-described "girl with a cell phone" developed a template for quick and effective disaster relief; her love of food and Louisiana and the land has resulted in an award-winning cookbook, a successful culinary event business, a radio show, and a reputation as a culinary anthropologist; her self-directed mandate to take on new challenges and learn about the world increased her food focus beyond Louisiana to the rest of the world, partnering with culinary travel tours.

Amy's company, Langlois, named for the housekeeper of New Orleans founder Bienville, called "the mother of Creole Cooking," encompasses all of her professional endeavors and passions. She built Langlois on the back of her experience in sales, business, hospitality, and mental health, and that experience is still relevant today.

She's the spark of energy that inspires and creates enthusiasm within her community to encourage everyone to gather around a cause or follow their own dreams.

Let her be your spark for motivational speaking on any number of topics including leadership, setting & achieving goals, community caretaking, and managing human logistics & networks. Or disaster relief consulting or cooking demonstrations. She'll plumb the depths of her Louisiana roots and culinary passion to achieve your purpose, whatever it may be.
