is a junior at Central Michigan University and in her second year as a STEM Education Scholar. Hailing from Muskegon, MI where she grew up with four little sisters, Gabby is pursuing a degree in physics for secondary education with a teachable minor in mathematics. She has always helped her younger siblings with their homework as she was growing up, and loved watching them succeed. Gabby also tutored younger students while attending high School, which is when she first realized that teaching is what she wanted to do for the rest of her life.
While leading her high school science club and facilitating courses at a science camp largely attended by middle schoolers, Gabby was able to see how STEM allowed kids to make connections and find joy in subjects with which they may have previously struggled. In addition to recently becoming a STEM Education Scholar, Gabby is also a member of the Society of Physics Students on campus.
