Gabi hails from a whimsical village, not upstate, in Westchester, NY. Being number three in a sisterhood of four greatly influenced Gabi’s need to constantly be playing some type of sport. If her sisters did it, she did it (excluding bridge jumping). Gabi began dance lessons at the ripe, old age of three and started swimming competitively at age five. If only she had started sooner, she could’ve been a contender! But ‘twas not all for naught, as she can now outswim (and outdance) most aquatic predators including sharks, squid and the rare web-footed buffalo.
The story continues as Gabi was determined to find the sport that would take her to the Olympics. From infancy through high school, Gabi tried her hand at softball, basketball, bowling, field hockey, bocce ball, soccer, skiing, cheerleading, cornhole, lacrosse, javelin and 1850s style bare-knuckle boxing.
Throughout Gabi’s life she has strived to give back. She was a lifelong Girl Scout and founded a club called High Schools Against Cancer. This passion carried through to The University of Delaware, where she joined a sorority and helped raise money for Service for Sight. Gabi has also donated five kidneys, built three homeless shelters and single-handedly extinguished an orphanage fire whilst in the middle of staffing a PBS telethon. Charity is important.
After some time in the fashion industry, Gabi began playing in various ZogSports leagues. She quickly realized that this was a place where she could bring together the fun, social, and charitable aspects of her life. A few hundred interviews later and she’s NYC’s Social Operations & Growth Manager.
That brings us to the present. While Gabi still doesn’t hold any Olympic titles, there’s a good chance she’ll rank in the biathlon. She just needs to try it first.
