Gail was born and raised as the eighth of ten children in Baltimore, Maryland. She spent her formative and teen years developing her love of musical theater and the arts by studying and performing in her school productions, local community colleges, theaters, summer stock, a repertory acting company and Maryland Public Television.
After graduating from high school, Gail followed her dream and moved to Hollywood, California where she experienced the business side of the industry working with the Albert G. Ruben Co., Entertainment Insurance Agency in Beverly Hills as an Assistant Claims Representative. However, it was after she had returned to Baltimore and was working in Marketing at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra that she realized her love of promotion for others and the performing arts.
After raising her family, Gail began to grow a passion for empowering others to pursue their own performing arts dreams. She felt she was led to a “God appointment” when she met Up2Me Radio’s, Alicia Ward, Author and Radio Host of There is Life After Lay-off at the 2013 Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival in Atlanta, Georgia to honor her friend, Actress and Executive Producer, Julie Silcott. Gail felt an instant connection and respect for Alicia and the Atlanta Life Media team (led by Founder, CEO and Executive Producer, Melinda Davis} who were committed to the same passion in directing others towards finding success in their own personal journeys through media excellence. This meeting led to an invitation to join the Atlanta Life Media, LLC team and as the second radio host added to their Up2Me Radio program with The Up2Me Magazine Show, a companion to the magazine of the same name, of which Gail is a Senior Copy Editor today.
To date, Gail continues as host of The Up2Me Magazine Show as “Gabby G”, every Saturday morning from 10am-11am (EST). Currently in its fourth season, The Up2Me Magazine Show offers a premiere platform for a variety of guests and in the faith-based film industry to go behind the scenes to share their own personal back-stories to offer resources, tips and practical tools that bring inspiration and direction to nearly one million listeners at Up2Me Radio.
