The Walts Recipe (For Work, Life & Tacos)

Nic Walts may have grown up surfing and playing beach volleyball in his origin state of California, but his education at Louisiana State University and subsequent time working on various Louisiana campaigns gave him a heart (and mind) for the Pelican State. “I worked at the State Capitol in college for the Senate Revenue & Fiscal Affairs Committee and the Senate & Governmental Committee,” he said. “I made a lot of relationships there. After I graduated, I wanted to continue fostering those relationships and decided to make Louisiana home. I worked initially for the Governor’s office and did a few state and regional campaigns before The Picard Group.”

These days, as Director of Policy for The Picard Group, Walts enjoys connecting with people and solving difficult problems. “My goal is to continue building and using my relationships on all sides of a situation to navigate the confusing and convoluted process that is Louisiana politics. I want to look back and know the work we did helped place or remove a law on the books or change an industry requirement for the better and moved Louisiana forward,” he said. Walts’ level of investment in the work he does, with industries including healthcare, technology, transportation, oil/gas and working with municipalities, can be attributed to his love for Louisiana. He became fully immersed in the culture and developed an understanding and appreciation for the diversity of this great state.

When he’s not working in Louisiana politics, Walts enjoys spending time with his friends and family and getting in as much travel as possible. “My connections at work are important, but it’s the relationships outside of office hours that truly matter, and fortunately, there can be some cross-over.” This Eagle Scout still loves the great outdoors, including hiking and camping. He also considers himself a Louisiana sportsman, enjoying hunting and fishing anywhere from Mer Rouge to Shell Beach and Grand Chenier to Grand Isle. He’s also involved in the Acadiana community including: membership in “the705” Young Professionals in Lafayette and a graduate from Leadership Lafayette Class XXVIII. He currently serves as Chair of the State Government Day for the Leadership Institute of Acadiana and sits on the board for Junior Achievement of Acadiana. Walts supported Lafayette Education Foundation’s “ReProm” as a court member in 2016 and volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Acadiana. To complement his work at The Picard Group, Nic participates in the Governmental Subcommittee of OneAcadiana, the regional Chamber of Commerce.

Nic’s Tacos

Nic Walts likes to keep it simple for summertime eats. The newlywed and new homeowner dishes up a simple recipe sure to please.

“It might be my southern California roots but nothing beats street tacos,” he says. “Just grill some flank steak, slice it and put it in a corn tortilla with some chopped onions and cilantro. Squeeze some lime juice and sprinkle it with a little salt. Keep it simple! Pair it with a Dos Equis or tequila – consumer’s choice.”
