Gabrielle’s philosophy is that travel is not just about the destination, but the people and experiences we encounter along the way. Traveling opens her eyes to the diverse ways of life around the world and encourages her to grow as a person. She believes that the key to a fulfilling journey includes exploring different cultures, world heritage sites, wildlife, and the natural beauty we fail to appreciate when buried in our daily lives.
Gabrielle’s areas of expertise range from the South Pacific – including Australia, French Polynesia, and Fiji – to off-the-beaten-path places like Africa, the Galapagos, Machu Picchu, and Patagonia. She holds an Adventure Specialist designation from the Travel Institute and prefers traveling on an “active” mode. East Africa and South America have both become new passions for her inner adventurer.
Gabrielle enjoys sharing her experience and knowledge and takes pride in providing exceptional service to create unique, memory-making experiences for each and every client she has worked with since 1997.
In her free time, Gabrielle enjoys taking photography classes, hiking, biking, kayaking, and working on her diving skills. As a certified SCUBA diver, she’s decided that the views through her mask are far more breathtaking in the West Indies than in the quarries of Ohio.
