Gabriela was born and raised in Truckee, CA and worked as a medical assistant for many years in the North Lake Tahoe / Truckee area. In 2019 she decided to pursue a degree in Public Health to increase her knowledge on how to promote and protect the health of people and the community. She received her bachelor’s in Public Health with a concentration in Community Health Education from Sacramento State University, and served as a perinatal care coordinator in Sacramento. Recently, she returned to the community she grew up in to assist patients in accessing care and community resources. In her free time, Gabriela can be found outdoors hiking and camping.

Gabriela facilitates the Nutrition For a Healthy Pregnancy class in Spanish the fourth Saturday of every month. She can also be seen at the Center For Health, translating for our Spanish speaking patients during Biofeedback and Nutrition appointments.
