About Dr. Gabby
Former Fashion Model turned Passionate Professor & Career Coach for Women in Wellness.
In 2006, Gabrielle Pelicci, a former international fashion model, became “Dr. Gabby” when she completed her Ph.D. and started changing lives with her transformational courses and coaching.
After constant pressure to lose weight and become the ultra-thin model idealized by the media, Gabrielle left the unhealthy lifestyle behind and embarked on a journey to define beauty on her own terms.
Gabrielle studied everything from Buddhist Philosophy to Neuroscience – traveling to more than 40 countries to uncover creative and unconventional ways to live a healthy life. Today, Gabrielle has more than a decade of teaching experience under her belt at top universities in Mind-Body Medicine and Holistic Health.
As the Founder of Women in Wellness Career Training, Gabrielle empowers women of all ages to go beyond their limitations and achieve their dreams – reminding them to live their own kind of beautiful life.

Dr. Gabby inspired me to complete my dissertation when I was my most insane self. I was exhausted and my stress was creating physical illness. I was literally a minute from giving up. She was like water in a drought. Through art, collage, honest conversation and creativity, she inspired me to keep going.Jenny Simon, Ph.D.
