Gabby was born in California and grew up exploring all over the southeast. When her heart called her to the mountains, in 2015, she packed up and moved to Asheville, NC. Since then, she has completed her B.S. in Environmental Science with a concentration in environmental management and policy and a minor in economics from the University of North Carolina at Asheville. Gabby found she had the calling to work towards serving others and protecting the beautiful places we love after an internship with Asheville GreenWorks, time spent teaching hula hoop fitness, and working with disaster relief organizations. In her free time, Gabby can be found hula hooping, camping, and exploring waterfalls and trails all around WNC. She is excited to serve her second year as the Community Forestry Coordinator for Asheville GreenWorks because she will be able to connect with the people and places she loves the most.
