I met Gussie Fava, our incredible New Orleans Ambassador, back when she lived in NYC. As a friend of a friend we hung in similar circles but right when we all started getting closer she moved away. Flash forward 4 years I get a message from Gussie on Facebook about launching a New Orleans chapter and as serendipity will have it, I already had a trip planned for that spring to NOLA. In April 2016 we launched our 4th chapter of Six Degrees Society and have since hosted Curated Dinners, Calligraphy Classes, Mixology 101 events and have an upcoming Adult Coloring & Wine Event. Read on to learn more about Gussie and how she’s brought together a group of extraordinary women in New Orleans. 

Back in April 2016 I launched the New Orleans chapter of Six Degrees Society. While in NOLA I was struck by the European influence that was seen throughout the city, the incredibly delicious seafood selection and the kindness of the natives. I enlisted the help of one of my favorite NOLA foodie natives to write her guide to New Orleans. Enjoy reading about NOLA through the eyes of Sarena Teng, a pediatric anesthesiologist and native.
