Hi! My name is Gabriele. I’m a professor and coach helping high school, college, and graduate students—and educators—live their calling. I’m currently earning my coaching certification through the International Coaching Federation. This training dovetails with my over twenty years’ experience teaching the humanities.
I’ve lived through three major vocational transitions. I explored every major possible, from horticulture to journalism to Japanese, before I found myself. I studied abroad in universities in Japan, Denmark, and the United States. And during my doctorate, I struggled deciding whether I could find a home in academia.
These experiences are the roots of my passions and my research: helping students find their vocations, supporting wellness, living abroad, navigating intercultural differences, home and belonging.
Although I’ve lived in the states for 20 years, I’m still a German at heart. I enjoy reading good books, running in nature, crocheting toys for my two sons, experimenting in the kitchen, and trying out new hikes with my family.
I look forward to meeting you!
