Meet Gabby

Hi friends!

I was born and raised in the great state of TX and have stuck around ever since, specifically in Mansfield until High School and now, Dallas, as an adult.

I was raised knowing about Jesus as the man who died on a cross to save me, but it wasn’t until the summer of 8th grade that I came to truly know Him as my Lord and Savior. He sovereignly used a youth camp in Oklahoma and some faithful youth leaders to call me to Himself. Knowing Him has granted me a greater hope, a keen understanding in my identity as His daughter, and a deep security in my inheritance (1 Peter 1:3-5). It is my great delight to be a vessel in allowing others to experience these same things, through discipleship and relationship.

I went off to Texas A&M University in 2016 where I studied Communication with a minor in Psych. I walked away from college with 6 college roommates, 4 summers spent at the Pine Cove Timbers (8th graders, it was quite full circle), and an acceptance to the Watermark Institute class of 2020-2021.

I have since finished the Institute, stuck around to work full-time on staff, and gotten married! The Lord is KIND and continues to use His people and places to draw me nearer to Himself – I am humbled. It is an honor to have a hand here in what God is doing through Watermark Community Church!

In my spare time you can find me at a fun DTX coffee shop, enjoying the sun somewhere, cooking a Half Baked Harvest recipe in my tiny apartment, or convincing someone else to join TruFusion (a gym that I love and advocate for) – and all with my dear husband, Alex.
