Interview with Dr. Gabby at Well Adjusted Mama Radio Show:


Where are you from?
I was born in Hershey, Pa. USA.  I start moving around the country when I graduated from high school and I’ve lived in New York, Miami, Los Angels, Washington D.C., Berlin, Tel Aviv, and Athens, Greece – to name a few places.

Tell us your latest news?

I have so many exciting things happening – a free online program called Women in Wellness Career Summit where I interview 24 Health & Wellness experts about how to build a purposeful and profitable holistic business. The release of my first book: Blissful Business!  A new online course called Women in Wellness Career Training where we dive deep into all the topics covered in the book such as marketing, social media and PR.   I am so happy to be building a community of hundreds of like-minded women. 

When and why did you begin writing?

I’ve been writing for as long as I could hold a pencil.  My first big writing project was my doctoral dissertation (2006) which was a study on the life stories of women healers. A summary of the study was published in Revision Journal.  I’ve also published many mainstream articles in various outlets like Elephant Journal and  I love to write J

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I first considered myself a writer when I started getting published more frequently around 2012. 

What inspired you to write your first book?

I really want to share everything that I’ve learned about building a successful wellness business – and I want the information to be affordable and accessible to new practitioners.  There is so much information out there and it can be really overwhelming.  This book is a simple, easy guidebook that covers all the critical things that you need to know to be successful. 

Do you have a specific writing style?

I write like I talk.  No-fluff, down-to-earth prose that is easy to understand. 

How did you come up with the title?

I am blissful when my business is running smoothly and I believe that everyone should have the same experience with their work – joyful, happy, satisfying pleasure of doing work that you love and having a positive impact on the world. Blissful Business is exactly what I want everyone to create.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

It’s not a novel – it’s a guidebook. It combines practical advice with case studies and homework assignments so that you can build a purposeful and profitable holistic business.

How much of the book is realistic?

It’s 100% realistic based on my 15 years of experience in the wellness industry.

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Yes, everything is based on me and my clients.

What books have most influenced your life most?

I’m addicted to memoirs.  I read every memoir I can get my hands on from poets like Mary Karr to businesswomen like Stephanie Shirley. 

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Mary Karr is a big influence on me.  I like her raw, emotional style of writing.

What book are you reading now?

I am reading Let it Go: The Story of Entrepreneur Turned Ardent Philanthropist

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

I am discovering new authors all the time.  I especially like passionate female writers.

What are your current projects?
I have a memoir manuscript that I am working on – I have about 500 pages and it needs to be edited and condensed.

Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members?
I love school – that’s why I stayed in school until my 30s and got my Ph.D.  I always felt safe and supported in the classroom.

What would you like my readers to know?
Please let in touch.  I love to hear from readers.  You can email me at or find me on social media.
