About Amy Sins:
Media Personality, New Orleans Chef & Keynote Speaker
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, publish, 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 & the land has resulted in an international award-winning cookbook, a profitable boutique Creole hotel, a publishing company, 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 focus beyond Louisiana to the rest of the world.
Born and raised in nearby Gonzales, Louisiana (the Jambalaya Capital of the World and home of the best damn brown jambalaya around), Amy didn’t follow the typical path of a New Orleans chef. Her company, Langlois, encompasses all of her professional endeavors and passions. She built Langlois on the back of her 20+years of experience in sales, business, management, hospitality, and disaster relief, 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 speaking on any number of topics including welcome to New Orleans keynotes, leadership, setting & achieving goals, community care taking, and managing human logistics & networks.
Amy also specializes in Louisiana Cajun & Creole cuisine history and culture. She’ll plumb the depths of her Louisiana roots and passion to achieve your purpose, whatever it may be.
