Gabrielle Whitlock joined the Washington Harbor District Alliance staff in January of 2021, and currently serves as the Market Assistant Manager and Coordinator for the Beaufort County Healthy Eating and Active Living Collaborative and Food Council.

Gabrielle came to Washington from East Carolina University where she earned her Master of Arts in Health Communication and Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a concentration in public relations, a minor in English, and a certificate in business and technical writing.

As a student, she interned with Uptown Greenville, Greenville, NC’s downtown development non-profit organization, which is where her passion for community-building began. Since her internship, she has worked for local breweries, local music venues, and in tourism to help grow Eastern North Carolina (ENC) cities and connect local citizens and visitors in an effort to enrich ENC communities.

When Gabrielle is off the clock, she enjoys time with her family, friends, and pets, George Waffles and Buddha. Concerts, jewelry-making, traveling, and exploring the outdoors are some of her favorite pastimes.
