Personal Reflections:
Gabie lives in Hammonds Plains, NS., with her golden-doodle named Penny. She grew up in an entrepreneurial family and is the only family member not formally involved in the family business. She loves undertaking research projects. She continually seeks to draw examples from her research and family business environment to inform her classroom teaching.
