Partner & Mexico Executive DIrector
Gabriela’s friends joke that they still don’t know where she’s from. Having lived in 13 cities in seven different countries, she’s discovered a passion for travel, different cultures and languages that has guided her dedication to issues of development in the last several years. Before leading Laboratoria Mexico, Gabriela worked as a public policy consultant in Mexico CIty, as project coordinator for different development projects in the slums of Rio de Janeiro with the IDB and in the Andes mountains of Peru with Odebrecht. She is driven by a strong conviction that social enterprises have the potential to impact millions of lives and contribute with an economy that supports greater equality in opportunity. She holds a BSc in Psychology from Boston College and a Master degree in Public Administration and Development Practice from Columbia University in New York.
