She is a natural communicator and fabulous storyteller who can bring a hushed reverence and meaningful woven tale to even the most everyday of experiences! In Gabriella’s work with children, she blends the creative, the physical and the useful. Gabriella was raised with respect for nature and an active outdoor life. She is excited to lead children in doing within an enriching environment and bringing about healthy growth.
Gabriella grew up in the northern part of Sweden, in the world of the Sami Laplanders, the indigenous people of the north. She completed her teacher training in Stockholm, Sweden and remained teaching in Stockholm for many years.
