Gabi has a background in wildlife biology and environmental education. She received her Bachelor’s degree from the College of Wooster in Ohio, and a Master’s degree in wildlife biology from Michigan State University. However, research wasn’t her cup of tea so she moved from biology to environmental education, working in South Carolina, California, Illinois, and Utah before coming to Colorado. Her most recent job prior to SJMA was with the Utah Division of Wildlife as their Wetlands Education Program Coordinator.
Gabi has been working for SJMA since September, 2004, starting out as the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument (CANM) Stewardship Coordinator, then moving into the Education Outreach Director position. Gabi coordinates field trips, classroom presentations, teacher workshops, and conservation education special events, among other things, as part of her job. She works mostly from her home in Cortez, but can also be found at the Public Lands Center in Durango, usually on Tuesdays.
Gabi is married to Paul Morey, a wildlife biologist with Mesa Verde National Park, and they have two sons, Leo and Sam. While most of her free time is spent being a mommy, she also tries to squeeze in other activities, including climbing, swimming, mountain biking, yoga, x-country skiing, hiking and running.
