California born, Gabby is a mix of her mother from Long Island (where her height comes from), and her father from Trinidad (who died when she was five). Her trademark piece of jewelry, copied on a tattoo inside her right ankle, is a stylized sterling silver cross worn by her father. Raised on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, Gabby didn’t take up volleyball until in the 11th grade when she and her mother moved to St. Petersburg, Florida. Gabby won an athletic scholarship to Florida State University where she majored in Communications and played two seasons of volleyball before accepting offers from the modeling world in New York. She was only a sophomore at Florida State University when Elle named her “One of The Five Most Beautiful Women in The World”. Despite the allure of high paying modeling jobs, Gabby returned to the FSU campus and set two school volleyball records in solo blocks (240) and total blocks (747). Both records still stand today. In 1997, Florida State University inducted Gabby into the college’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

Women’s Sports & Fitness named Gabby one of the ‘20 Most Influential Women in Sports’ (August 1997). Regarding their choice of Gabby for the issue’s cover, the magazine’s editor wrote, “Because I believe she represents, finally, the answer to all the image-questing pendulum swinging of the decades gone by.
