Gabriela is the Tech Director at Egyptian YouTheatre. She has worked for Egyptian YouTheatre since 2019. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young-Idaho in Theatre & Speech Education with a Minor in History Education. There she directed a middle school after school program of the Lion King and discovered she loved teaching pre-teens. She has a passion for how theatre education can enrich the lives of children by teaching emotional development, social skills and speech techniques. 

After earning her degree, Gabriela taught in public education for 5 years, teaching courses in drama, stage production, and musical theatre. Along with her class load, she worked as producer, director, and head technician for the annual musical. Favorites include DescendantsWizard of Oz, and Once On This Island. She specializes in teaching drama through her own curriculum and while working for the Granite District she wrote state drama standards and rubrics for other drama teachers. During the pandemic, her online drama courses were used across the district. Gabriela has also worked at the community level as a light designer and sound engineer for several theaters across the state.        

In her free time, she loves to celebrate her Brazilian heritage, travel, read a good book for book club and spend time with her dogs Lily and Mini. Of course, going to theatrical productions is a big part of how she continues to be inspired in her own theatre pursuits.
