Gabby’s heart for Haiti began in 2011, shortly after her dad suddenly passed away. With such a sudden loss came a realization of the shortness of life that linked arms strongly with a passion to care for orphaned and abandoned children. She began praying that the Lord would guide her and reveal where He wanted her to serve Him. Shortly after that, God began to show her the calling that He had placed on her life to serve the orphaned and abandoned children in Haiti. Since then, she has visited Haiti on 5 short term mission trips and spent a summer interning in Port-Au-Prince through a ministry based in her hometown in Georgia. Gabby was first introduced to Hands and Feet Project in 2016, when she interned at the Jacmel campus for a summer. At this time, she knew she was called to Haiti full-time.
In October 2018, Gabby moved to the mountains of Haiti to work at an orphanage. One year later, the Lord prompted her to return to HAFP to serve full-time. She has a degree in Cross-Cultural Studies from Toccoa Falls College and is passionate about addressing the orphan crisis in Haiti.
“I am incredibly grateful to have the privilege of serving the Haitian people and helping these children grow into their God-given potential.” - Gabby
