Gaby Gonzalez will be joining the Glean Kentucky team this Fall 2021 as our VISTA Grants Coordinator. A recent Eastern Kentucky University alum, she graduated in December of 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Social Justice Studies. She hopes to return to her alma mater in the near future to pursue an MPA in Community Development. Along with her knowledge of social justice issues, she brings to the table a background in customer service and a passion for food. A lifelong Lexingtonian, she looks forward to her time as a VISTA working with Glean tackling both poverty and food insecurity in her community and throughout Kentucky. She firmly believes that one of the best ways to build connection is through good food! In her free time, she enjoys going on hikes, supporting local small businesses, and cuddling up to her furbabies, Lady and Mochi.
