Gabriella, or Gaby as most people call her, is the co-founder of Proofpoint Marketing, a digital marketing consultancy she runs with her business partner and husband, Mike. Gaby is first generation American, born in El Paso, Texas. She's lived in eight different cities across the US, and grew up mostly on the East Coast with her immigrant parents (dad originally from Egypt and mom from Brazil), and two younger siblings, who now all live in Minnesota, as well. After finishing her degree in communication from Boston University, she launched her career in Boston and grew her love for all things digital. Since moving to Minnesota unexpectedly in 2010 to be closer to her family, Gaby is happy to call Minneapolis home. She met her husband Mike on JDate in 2011, and the couple got married in 2013. In August 2015, they welcomed their first child, Lana Rose, who was born at 24-weeks due to severe preeclampsia and HELLP Syndrome. Outside of digital marketing and being a mom, Gaby enjoys home decorating, traveling, dabbling in photography and exercise. Gaby, Mike, and Lana live in Plymouth with their German Shepherd mix Samson.
