Gabrielle currently is a program support analyst for Risk Mitigation Consulting, where she is responsible for the planning, organization, and coordination of Mission Assurance Assessments at United States Marine Corps installations worldwide and supporting risk management activities within the Department of Defense. In 2017, she was selected to be a Consular Fellow with the Department of State.

Gabrielle became passionate about international affairs due to her upbringing in an Army family and after traveling to the UK and Ireland as a People to People Student Ambassador and participating in the Global Young Leaders Conference in high school. In pursuit of this interest, she worked as a research assistant for a consulting firm during her undergraduate career, which led to her first publication through the Institute for Defense Analyses in 2016.
