Education: MSc Outdoor Education at the University of Edinburgh
During her high school years, Gaby moved to New York’s Adirondack Mountains and soon found herself rock and ice climbing nearly every day, heading off into the mountains as often as possible. A few years later, she began working as a climbing guide in Alaska while finishing her Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy & Environmental Studies.
Her love for the outdoors also led Gaby to pursue a Master of Science in Outdoor Education at the University of Edinburgh. While living in Scotland, Gaby discovered an affinity for travel that inspires her to explore new places and cultures at every opportunity.
These days, adventure often takes Gaby to the polar regions where she enjoys introducing travelers to everything the far-flung landscapes offer as an Antarctic & Arctic expedition guide. In addition to polar guiding, Gaby also works as a Wilderness Medicine Instructor with SOLO Schools and a Climbing Wall Instructor Course Provider with the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA).
Most at home in the outdoors, Gaby has an affection for penguins, glaciers, meteorology, and wildlife photography, which she loves to share with polar expedition guests. When not she’s not scaling a peak or out on the water, Gaby can often be found drinking espresso, reading philosophy, or creating engaging content about the outdoors, travel, education, and finance.
Pourquoi Pas? (Why Not?) Antarctic explorer Jean-Baptiste Charcot’s fourth ship was named Pourquoi Pas? And it embodied his spirit of adventure, something I strive for every day.
