Gaby often describes herself as a bureaucrat by day, moonlighting as a dog trainer at R+ Hundskola (“R+ Dog Academy”) on nights and weekends. A social worker by education and profession, she has spent a good chunk of her adult work life as a probation officer, mainly working with offenders of intimate partner violence. Nowadays she is an analyst within a government agency, working with behavior change at an organizational level.
A self-proclaimed behavior geek and animal rights activist, Gaby strives to learn all she can about *all the things* that can help herself and others to be better pet parents. She holds a special spot in her heart for shelter dogs/rescues and currently shares her life with her wife Ida and their Irish stray Jinkx, rehomed chihuahua mix Lilly, and Spanish foster pup Riff Raff. Gaby is a recurrent sufferer from imposter syndrome, but is working hard to view herself with the same kindness she tries to meet learners with.
