Gabby is originally from a small, yet politically and ethnically diverse town in south-central Indiana. The unique context of her hometown relative to the larger state drove her interest in studying politics as an undergraduate at Indiana University. After graduating, Gabby pursued a Ph.D. in Government at Harvard, where she studied the intersection of religious and political identities in the US. While at Harvard, Gabby taught undergraduate courses on the politics of American education and research design, for which she won two Bok Center Awards for Excellence in Teaching. She also served as a thesis advisor for Government department undergraduates.
Gabby has experience teaching social science academic writing, from shorter course assignments to journal-length articles. She is passionate about helping students to break down the writing process into manageable steps that will help them approach future assignments confidently and efficiently. She also greatly enjoys helping students craft research designs that translate their interests into testable research questions.
Outside of tutoring, Gabby is pursuing a side career as a cheesemonger (yes, really!) and an at-home education in natural wine. If she's not eating or drinking something new, you can find her playing squash, working on her CrossFit power-lifts, or hiking in the woods with several dogs!
