Gabriela is a proud mother of three children Santiago, Jacob & Aira and wife to her charming husband Miguel.
Gabriela & Miguel own a family business, and due to her love for people she enjoys a rewarding career in real estate. Gabriela uses her people skills to connect local businesses and non-profit organizations to collaborate towards community events, raising funds for the children’s only residential shelter in Southwest Florida. She believes most small business owners want to do something meaningful for the community, and connecting small businesses to unite behind a meaningful cause helps and empowers the entire community.
Gabriela is also a volunteer for the kids ministry at her local church. Recently crowned Mrs. Florida American, Gabriela was contacted by an advertising company to participate in Naples’s Florida Recycling Campaign, as the model for the county’s campaign, and as Mrs. Florida American.
With every opportunity the community offers to model or be the spokesperson for local business Gabriela uses the profits as a donation to the only children's residential shelter for homeless and abandoned children.
Gabriela acquired her tenacious drive and faithful work ethic from her hard working mother. Gabriela’s passion for protecting and empowering homeless and abused children comes from her experience when she was 8 years old. For about four years she was under her father's care, but due to his struggle with alcoholism and mental illness Gabriela and her brother went hungry and were neglected. Having experienced the pain and neglect many children in abandoned and homeless situations live with, today Gabriela channels her passion through service that brings comfort and healing to the shelters.
God, Family and Community are Gabriela’s Inspiration to serve as hard as she can to make a difference in the world.
