Amy Sins

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, and inspire. 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 self-directed mandate to take on new challenges and learn about the world increased her focus to make the world a better place.
