Healthy Beginnings

Our Team

Gabrielle Irvin, Product Manager

Greetings! I am extremely fortunate to be part of the Healthy Beginnings team, as I love to read and write about health and wellness!

I received bachelor’s degrees in journalism and political science at the University of Nevada, Reno and received my master’s degree in news-editorial journalism at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I’ve worked in media since 2009 — it’s a rewarding and evolving industry that certainly keeps me on my toes!

My interest in health, wellness, and preventative care truly sparked when I studied as a news-editorial journalism student and volunteered in the trenches of the fast-paced Emergency Department at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana, Ill. The smells, sights, and sounds of the ER greatly impacted my views on healthcare and wellness, and encouraged me to focus my journalism on a plethora of health-centric topics including cancer treatment and management, diet and exercise, and mental health and addiction.

I believe that leading a healthy lifestyle starts with embracing a positive outlook on life and overcoming an “I can’t” mentality. I work each day to become a healthier me!

When not editing, writing, and engaging community members, I can be found spending time with my fiancé on the golf course, binge-watching The Office and 30 Rock (my all-time favorite TV shows), and eating at some of Reno’s awesome local restaurants.
