How She Discovered CCT: Gabriele says she is, “forever grateful to Julie Rowe who introduced me to CCT.” Gabriele and Julie had known each other from having worked on a start-up together.

CCT Experience: Although there certainly have been challenges while leading the organization during this recent period of growth and evolution, Gabriele describes her board experience as, “a lot of fun with such a talented group of individuals.” Gabriele has been involved with many facets of CCT’s operations. When asked what she has enjoyed the most, she responds, “I love the project work as that is the core of our mission - I’ve been a team member, project manager and sponsor.” In addition to project work, Gabriele also admits to a passion for client development. She co-chaired the Client Development Committee and still loves doing client outreach during the summer months as well as conducting site visits with applicants in the fall. Gabriele shares, “I love meeting with potential clients, learning about the incredible work they are doing and figuring out how a CCT team could best help.”

Gabriele and her husband are avid wildlife photographers. They love exploring the National Parks, Yellowstone being a favorite. The couple have also travelled to other countries, including Australia, where they have discovered, “an abundance of wild animals to photograph.”
