Fall 2017 - Present
I am currently in my final academic year at Franklin University Switzerland, studying International Management with a minor in Communications and Media Studies. I am originally from Marin County, California (just north of San Francisco). Although I do miss the ocean when I am away, Lake Lugano is an idyllic substitute. As a child, my mother and I used to travel during summer vacations to visit family in Europe and tour new destinations. My passion for exploration has not faded since, and I am always open to spontaneous adventures - near and far. I am an avid outdoorswoman with a love of hiking and trekking, and I spend my summers guiding sea kayaking tours in my hometown.

Gabrielle is a senior at Franklin University Switzerland, studying Communications and Media with a minor in Marketing. she grew up in the United States, but is half Swiss thanks to her mom. She loves living here and presently has no intentions of going back! In all honesty, you'll probably find her most often in the library, but she does enjoy taking walks and hopping across the border to buy groceries in her free time. The fact that she loves to travel seems like a given!
