Gabriella is a gifted teacher, healer, adviser, coach, and mentor with the anointing to hear in the spirit and discern the underlying truths to bring about understanding. This understanding inevitably induces peace, also giving clarity as to which direction to take and how to proceed in their life. With her gift of sight, feeling, knowing, discernment, interpretation, and teaching, Gabriella has worked as a Spiritual Teacher and Adviser for adults and youth for over 25 years allowing herself to be used as a vessell for truth & healing.
As a former model, dancer, stage performer, commercial actor, songwriter, and singer, Gabriella always felt led to help others learn to do what they desired to do. While working for a modeling/talent agency, she often found herself answering questions for parents who wanted to get their kids into the business or had no clue how the business operated as a parent. This led her to create an instructional manual for parents with children in the industry (Parent Talent Management). After leaving the agency, she found herself talking a lot to her daughter's friends about getting into the business. This led her to begin First Step, a consulting service for youth to discover their talents and reach their dreams. This love for teaching and empowering youth to realize their dreams turned into a full-blown curriculum program for disadvantaged and gifted youth who are pursuing the performing arts who do not have support, funds, self-confidence, or family to help them along their way (Success Opportunity Achievement & Reward in America; 1994/ Stand Out And Rise America; 2016), with the vision for a Youth Center - The Betterment of Music & Arts Center(BMAC) where youth can come and feel a part of something with other like-minded youth and feel they fit in.
From 1994 to 2011, Gabriella worked in her program within the city of Kent, WA, and local schools. She served on various nonprofit boards and participated in countless fundraisers for the community, schools, and families. The Kent Public Schools adopted her program as an after-school and summer program in 2006 through the African American Cultural & Convention Center, for which she was Executive & Program Director. In 2011, she suffered the great loss of her father, and her life took on a new path. In 2012 she published her first book From Slave Girl to Queen. Gabriella has dedicated her life to helping heal the souls of people and teaching God's ways for life success. This is more than a calling for Gabriella, "It is who I am!" she states. As my dear friend used to always tell me every time I reached out to help someone, "There you go, you can’t help it; it’s like breathing for you."
