🎶Get to know Gaby!🎶

Gaby received her Bachelor of Arts degree at Montclair State University, majoring in Music Therapy with a minor in Psychology. She spent her clinical internship working with individuals and groups of diverse backgrounds, diagnoses, and ages throughout San Diego County, and found she absolutely loves being a part of the San Diego community!

In her free time, Gaby loves grabbing ice-cream or coffee with friends, watching Disney movies, and petting strangers’ dogs (with permission of course).

Here’s what Gaby has to say as she starts her career at MTCCA: “I have always relied on music for personal and emotional expression, and am so thrilled to support others in finding similar comfort through their favorite songs and genres!”

We’re so excited to have her on !
