Gabriel Raven is the general manager of O-Ku Nashville, part of The Indigo Road Hospitality Group. Raven joins O-Ku after serving as assistant general manager at Oak Steakhouse in Nashville for nearly two years. She relocated from Orlando in 2017 when she began her sales position with Oak Steakhouse. Shortly after, she transitioned to Assistant General Manager as a result of the restaurant’s need for hiring, training, restaurant operations, along with her high performance.
Raven earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management from the University of Central Florida. Shortly after moving to Orlando, she began working at the Citrus Club, a private city club owned by Club Corp., located on the 18th floor of a high-rise in downtown Orlando. She spent five years at the Citrus Club, working her way up the ranks, from banquet captain, to sales manager, and finally dining room manager.
Raven has always had a passion for food and beverage and even considered attending culinary school. The beach will always be close to her heart but some of her hobbies in Nashville include hiking at various waterfalls, playing volleyball, baking and cooking.
