Grants Proposal Coordinator
Gabrielle joined Generations For Peace in January 2021 as a Grants Proposal Coordinator. In this role, she is responsible for supporting the design and implementation of the organisation’s fundraising strategy. She also assists in preparing quality and effective fundraising materials, such as grant and partner proposals, fundraising-specific documents, and grant reports to governmental donors, non-governmental philanthropic donors, and commercial partners.
Originally from Indiana, United States of America, Gabrielle holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and National Security from Anderson University. She went on to earn her Master’s degree in International Affairs with a concentration in Conflict and Conflict Resolution from George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs. While working towards her Master’s degree, she completed a semester abroad at the University of Jordan at the Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II School of International Studies
Gabrielle first visited Jordan in 2018. She had always loved the region and knew that she wanted to come back to live and work. She is excited that, despite the challenges of 2020, she is living in Amman and working with GFP. Before joining GFP, Gabrielle worked as a Grants Intern with Collateral Repair Project, a refugee assistance group serving within Amman. Her past experience also includes working with consultancy and research groups, both within Jordan and the United States of America. All of these experiences drove her to continue to work within a peacebuilding and advocacy role.
Gabrielle grew up on a small farm in rural Indiana, where her family raised dairy goats as well as other farm animals including chickens, horses, sheep, and ducks. In her spare time, Gabrielle enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, learning Arabic, and hiking.
