As an undergraduate student at James Madison University, Gabby Erestain’s experiences with the University Program Board led to an interest in the field of student affairs. Following JMU, she moved to Connecticut to work on her M.A. in Higher Education. She loved her grad school and assistantship experience at the University of Connecticut so much that she stayed to work full-time in their Student Activities: Major Events and Programs office. Six years later and Gabby is back home in Virginia and excited to start another professional experience with Babco Entertainment!
Gabby enjoys her work in supporting advisors and students as they plan events and work towards bringing memorable experiences to their students! She assists with booking, marketing and brings her advisor experience into the Babco space.
● Gabby loves movement, exercise, and physical activity in many forms! She is a certified personal trainer, and enjoys the process of training for road races. In 2022, she ran the NYC Marathon – it’ll always be a great accomplishment, but it was by far her toughest run!
● Gabby has an ice cream cone every evening after dinner – not sure when this nightly routine started, but she’s always had a sweet tooth and no day is complete without a cone. Year round, you can find her at the local ice cream shop. Also – she has no favorite flavors, she loves them all.
