While there, she interned for two local newspapers: The Nashville Scene and The Tennessee Tribune. Gabrielle is also a member of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).
Gabrielle is a “people’s person” and she loves telling stories that give a voice to those in the community. When she isn’t in front of the camera, you can catch her cooking her favorite NOLA dishes, shopping, or staying fit. She is also a dog mom to her 10-year-old toy poodle, Jasper.
