Please join us in welcoming our new Publicity Intern, Gabby!

Hometown: Franklin, TN

Why Marbaloo?

Living in Nashville for the past three years has been such an inspiration to me; and being surrounded by talented and creative people is so important to me. At Marbaloo, I instantly felt the passion and the drive for creativity, and I’ve been in love ever since.

What is your thing and why?

PR is 100% my thing, and the more I learn and practice it, the more I fall in love. I have always been fascinated with storytelling, and through PR I am able to tell a story in a unique way. In the ever-changing world that we live in, I love the opportunities that we have for connecting through stories.

Why do you do what you do?

I crave creativity, I love out of the box thinking, and through PR, I have the ability to do so every day.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by travel and immersing myself in something I am not used to. Pushing myself to get comfortable with being uncomfortable is important to me.

How do you spend your free time?

I love spending time outdoors and you can always find me hiking or canoeing on a nice weekend. I love being active, especially outdoors, striking some yoga poses or going for a jog.

What do you wish people knew about you?

I actually grew up on a goat farm, so naturally, I’m an animal lover.

What’s your favorite saying?

Super cliché, but I love The Beatles, and a lot of their music shaped me. “All you need is love” is my mantra.

What do you do to recharge your creativity?

I think taking time for yourself is so important for personal growth. I’ve always been the type of person who says yes to everything and ends up with way too much on my plate; but recently, I’ve learned to say no and take time to chill with a dog and sip tea and reflect. It has made a tremendous difference and prevents burnout.

What song can’t you stop playing right now?

Lately, I’ve been playing anything by Briston Maroney on repeat. He has so many amazing summer jams. “June” and “Freakin’ Out on the Interstate” are a few of my favorites.
