Gabrielle brings a unique set of skills gained from her extensive time as a practicing attorney, a career counselor, and an adjunct professor to law students.
Gabrielle began her legal career as a litigator at the law firm of Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP. There for nearly a decade, Gabrielle appreciates and understands the inner workings and politics of private practice. It was in her litigation practice that Gabrielle ultimately found her passion: to provide mentorship and professional development guidance to others. In pursuit of this passion, Gabrielle left practice to join Fordham Law School’s Career Planning Center as an Associate Director. From there, Gabrielle served as an adjunct law professor at Rutgers School of Law, where, in addition to teaching a course designed to hone legal analysis and writing skills, she provided academic support and counseling to second year law students. Currently, when not consulting, Gabrielle is an adjunct professor of legal writing at Brooklyn Law School.
As a consultant, Gabrielle encourages taking a breath. It is all too easy to find comfort in the daily grind. For most lawyers, the career path until now has been predictable and linear and a call for change, whether by choice or not, can be daunting. Often just a reminder to slow down opens up the ability to truly figure out the best next step. Gabrielle can help you take the necessary pauses so that where you go next is not the result of a plan laid out for you but one chosen by you.
A New Jersey native, Gabrielle earned her law degree from Rutgers School of Law Newark, where she was a member of Rutgers Law Review and elected to the Order of the Coif upon graduation. Gabrielle moved to Brooklyn, NY at the start of her legal career. Still in Brooklyn, her household expanded over the years to include her husband and their two children.
When not consulting, Gabrielle enjoys teaching, photography, and watching her children forge their own path.
