Gabrielle is a second year student at the University of Alberta School of Business, with a major in marketing. This past year Gabrielle took on the role of Social Media Coordinator for the University of Alberta’s Enactus program for the Bio6 project. Gabrielle’s love of fashion and all things social media lead her to be a PINK Campus Representative for the 2019-2020 school year, as she hopes to one day pursue a career in the fashion or entertainment industry. After having the opportunity to be a delegate at several different conferences during her first year in business, Gabrielle was inspired to join the NEW team to help create an incredible conference for delegates that goes above and beyond any she’s attended in the past.
Gabrielle is thrilled to be on the External team and is working hard at gathering the best sponsors and guest speakers for this years’ conference. When she’s not working on planning the NEW conference, you can find Gabrielle sipping on at oat-milk chai latte from her favourite local coffee shop, taking her dog for a walk or working out.
