A native of Argentina, Gabriela has lived and worked for more than a decade in Ushuaia, the southernmost town in the world. Her interest for travelling and a degree in tourism management from the Universidad de la Patagonia, led Gabriela to serve as a guide in all corners of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, and the Antarctic Peninsula, as well as lecturing widely on South America and Antarctica sharing her first-hand experiences and enthusiasm for the region.
Gabriela has also been active in developing environmental education programs for children, focusing on the delicate ecosystems of Antarctica and Tierra del Fuego. She continues her work in education and outreach from her current position as the Education Manager for the International Antarctic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand. In her spare time, Gabriela is studying for her Ph.D. at Gateway Antarctica, Centre for Antarctic Studies and Research from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.
