Gabby spent her early life hiking and camping with her family and gained a fond appreciation for the joys of the woods and what it provides. At Western Carolina University, she earned a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resource Conservation and Management and a minor in Biology. Immediately after graduation in 2014 she joined Forest Stewards as an intern and later stayed at Forest Stewards as an AmeriCorps Project Conserve volunteer. Gabby joined EcoForesters in 2016 and continues to enjoy her time here as the GIS and Forestry Associate. In her spare time, she loves reading, traveling, learning new things, and spending time with family and friends.
