About Gabrielle

My life philosophy can best be described as Carpe Diem.  I love to live my life to the fullest!  Over the course of my life, I’ve been a nurse and a foster parent, homeschooled my children, adopted some of the most amazing kids in the world, raised beef cows, pigs, rabbits, chickens, and briefly goats (never again), got a BA, a BSN, and an MBA in nonprofit management and project management.

I love to spend time with my 6 great kids, 3 adorable (and pretty much perfect) grandchildren, and 2 rather large dogs. I live in Northeastern PA on 53 of the most beautiful but underutilized acres.  In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, oil painting, gardening, kayaking, and serving in my community.

Service to my community and to others is very important to me.  I serve on the local board of administration at my church and as a township auditor.  As a former ICU nurse and MBA, a continuous process of improvement (assess, plan, act, and reassess) is deeply ingrained in me.  I’ve created quick reference guides and templates for those auditors who will follow in my footsteps.  I’ve also consulted to help new auditors in another community to learn the process.  With my guidance, these auditors were able to submit the audit just three days past the deadline despite starting more than a month late.  I have established myself as a nonprofit consultant, sharing my skills, knowledge, and dedication to effective altruism with auditing. strategic planning, and process management.

My latest adventure as System Program Manager for Pre-admissions at Guthrie blends my love of process improvement and love for my patients. With all of my children grown, I have also turned my energy back to making use of our amazing property.
