Gabby graduated from Lewis and Clark Law School in 2020 where she worked at OHSU at the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. Before this, she attended the University of Portland where she graduated with a B.A. in environmental ethics and policies in 2016.
Prior to SFE Gabby’s job focused on promoting diversity and inclusion through events, supporting student and employee affinity groups, and creating recruitment documents that highlighted the various diversity missions, activities, and opportunities at OHSU. Additionally, she worked on implementing a process for the Center for Diversity and Inclusion to better connect students and employees with the Affirmative Action & Equal Opportunity office when necessary. Gabby’s favorite aspect of the job was helping with the summer research internships her office hosted for students from underserved communities. Her work helped to connect these students with valuable opportunities, such as working in labs and presenting their research, in order to make them competitive applicants for medical schools.
Currently, Gabby is the co-chair of SFE’s Diversity Committee. Her practice areas focus in: commercial lines, personal lines, negligence, products liability, slip and fall, timber trespass, premises liability, wrongful death, dram shop & tavern keeper, and traumatic brain injury.
As an active member of the Oregon Association of Defense Counsel, Gabby was elected as an OADC Vice Chair of the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Affinity Group in 2023.
Gabby is a Portland Native and first-generation lawyer with both of her parents in the medical field. Outside of work Gabby likes to ski, play video games, and spend time with her family. She also likes to sing and play guitar as she was in choirs throughout her childhood and college. Gabby likes to spend a lot of time with Milo, her Chihuahua Pug who accompanies her on hikes and trips and who loves to snuggle.
