Michelle Vallot is founder and president of Zydeco Foods, LLC, a Louisiana company producing unique, healthy food products.
Michelle began her sales career in the oil industry. Her interest in the environment eventually led her to attend law school at Southern University Law Center. After graduating, Michelle worked as a staff attorney for the Louisiana House of Representatives and later as a defense attorney in the Office of the Federal Public Defender in Lafayette.
True to the promise Michelle made to herself during the daily drives from Breaux Bridge to Baton Rouge for law school—that she would produce a delicious and nutritious snack that could be eaten on the run—Michelle did just that by starting Zydeco Foods. Her plan is to continue to roll out nutritious food products.
Michelle is a native of southwest Louisiana and currently lives in Breaux Bridge with her husband, Russell Whiting, a metal sculptor and artist.
