About the speaker

Born in New Orleans and raised in Sacramento, N’Gina Kavookjian is an artist of all the senses. Together with her husband, she started her first food-based business in 2009 with a catering and full service wedding company, which led to their first brick and mortar restaurant Eight American Bistro in Granite Bay, California.

Combining her unapologetic disposition with a love and passion for service, they opened South restaurant in 2012 where she won the hearts of Sacramentans through some damn good fried chicken. Adding The Quinn boutique and The Good Saint “urban reserve” to her suite of businesses, her goal is to create places where people forget to pick up their phones and simply connect with each other as humans.
