About Gabby

Gabby recently graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in computer science. She got involved in programming by customizing her Neopets profile with HTML and CSS as a 10 year old. While in college, she kept herself (extra) busy by helping run clubs, working on side projects, and helping young women discover programming and careers in software. Outside of programming, Gabby likes to create art, drink tea with her rabbit (Smalls), and point out every dog she sees.

What Gabby does at RNL

Gabby works on our facility management software developing new features and maintaining existing ones.

“I looked up at the mass of signs and stars in the night sky and laid myself open for the first time to the benign indifference of the world.” - Albert Camus, The Stranger

Name three things you can't live without.

A sketchbook, a pencil (for the sketchbook), and my water bottle.

What's something we wouldn't know by looking at you?

I have been a Legend of Zelda fan since I had enough fine motor skills to use a Nintendo 64 controller.
