Originally from Florida, Gabriela moved to upstate New York for college, where she started the Cornell Compost Club. She moved to NYC in 2006 working in banking and compliance, where she gained experience in business strategy. Later she worked on a cultural center development project in Chile that enabled indigenous populations to market and sell native, local food items. Now she uses her experiences working with GrowNYC and regional farms to ensure that all New Yorkers have access to the freshest, most nutritious locally grown food the region has to offer. Gabriela is interested in using sound business practices to develop regional food sovereignty and sustainability.
