After receiving a degree in the History of Art and Architecture from College of Charleston in 2013, Gabriella moved to Germany to travel and work.

In January, she accepted a position with Christie’s Old Master Department and moved to a Success Specialist position at artnet in April. Outside of work, Gabriella’s interests focus around getting lost in new areas of the city, eating cupcakes at every possible opportunity, and reading an incredibly random selection of books.
