Gaby fell in love with Latin America when she started traveling around Colombia at age 15 to learn Spanish and embrace her cultural roots. Since then, she has traveled to Costa Rica, Panama, Honduras, Chile, Bonaire, Dominican Republic, and Ecuador to work with local communities on service projects, medical brigades, and explore the diverse terrain and people of Latin America. Through each of her trips, she has found the power of connecting with people and exploring new terrains much different than those in the States.
She graduated from Marquette University with a double major in Psychology and Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture, focusing on guiding international students throughout Milwaukee, her research on mental health disparities, and tutoring Spanish. While studying at Marquette, she spent six months in Spain as part of the Marquette en Madrid program, soaking in all of the tapas and flamenco music while there. She then took on a new challenge living in New York City to complete her Masters at NYU in International Education. There, she was a part of the teaching/curriculum design team for International Human Rights Education/Activism while serving as the exchange program coordinator at Queens College.
Upon graduating, Gaby joined the faculty team at the Traveling School for two semesters in South America, leading students to navigate Latin American culture, female empowerment, globalization, and wander the majestic Andes Mountains. Most recently, she completed 4 weeks in Fiji, where she was teaching international development while facilitating community service projects for high school students.
Gaby is elated to join the team down in Chile and overall the School for Field Studies. She is hoping that the students embrace every adventure through the mountains and glaciers down in the majestic Patagonia.
