As part of the team that opened New Orleans Culinary and Hospitality Institute (NOCHI) in January 2019, Rémy embraced the opportunity to enter a high-impact nonprofit at its ground level. Her work in communications centers around community development, and she has been instrumental in building NOCHI's brand as a leader and advocate for the hospitality industry. Acting as a liaison between the school and its broader community of neighbors and stakeholders, she develops and drives the storytelling initiatives behind all of its many programs.
Before joining NOCHI, Rémy spent several years creating six cookbooks. Having collaborated with journalists and chefs including Mark Bittman, Alon Shaya, and Cortney Burns, she is skilled in distilling a wide range of ideas in a way that is accessible and compelling. She brings a keen attention to detail and a strong ability to execute to every project she touches.In 2018, Rémy co-founded the New Orleans chapter of Sister District, a nationwide grassroots organization that leverages volunteer energy to elect progressive candidates to state legislatures. Under her leadership, Sister District NOLA grew a base of over 200 volunteers in its first year through postcarding, text-banking, canvassing, and fundraising events for candidates including Tammy Savoie and Shanda Yates. Rémy also spearheaded 8 Days of Early Voting, a citywide GOTV initiative, in partnership with Indivisible NOLA, Citizen SHE, Action NOLA, MoVE Initiative, Power Coalition, and more than one dozen local businesses.
