Gabriella was fantastic! Engaging, insightful, and fun. She miraculously corralled 100+ people into participating. That takes talent. It was nice to go to a programs dinner event where we had an opportunity to participate as well as getting to know other members of the association without feeling “forced.” It really made the evening go by quickly.
