Gabriela has over 15 years of experience developing and implementing conservation projects in the nonprofit and government sectors in Mexico. Before joining Resources Law Group, she served as Executive Director of Niparajá, a leading nonprofit organization in Northwest Mexico, and as manager of National Parks for the National Commission of Protected Areas. Gabriela serves in a number of committees and advisory boards of nonprofits and philanthropic organizations, including the Mexican Fund for the Conservation of Nature, a private foundation that channels financial resources to on-the-ground conservation projects throughout Mexico.

Gabriela’s current appointment at Resources Law Group involves providing strategic advice and oversight for the Northwest Mexico Land Conservation Program of the Resources Legacy Fund (RLF), a public charity based in Sacramento, California. RLF offers strategic expertise in designing and implementing programs to conserve natural resources, creating innovative opportunities for effective conservation philanthropy, and advising on land use and natural resources protection and policy. Gabriela applies the lessons and skills gained as a Fellow to help create sustainable coastal development visions and conservation strategies for Northwest Mexico, and to build the social basis for pursuing these visions.
