Gabriella joined NewsChannel 3 in December 2012 — and has loved it ever since.

She is originally from Pittsburgh. She feels right at home in Hampton Roads — where there are Steelers fans everywhere!

Gabriella received her Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism at Ohio University. While at OU, she interned during the summers at WTAE and WPXI in Pittsburgh.

After college, she reported and filled-in on the anchor desk for WLUC in Marquette, Michigan (where it’s very cold!) While there, she had the privilege to report on a high school athlete named Eric Dompierre. Eric has Down Syndrome. Her stories, along with Eric, his father, and the help of his community, were able to change a Michigan law that extended scholastic athletic eligibility for student-athletes with disabilities. It is one of her proudest moments as a reporter.

In her free time, Gabriella enjoys spending time with friends and family, exercising, and trying new restaurants.
