I’m Gabrielle Rocha Rios, a Brazilian-American PhD student in International Psychology and coach for professional women.
Having researched and worked on mental and women’s health in the workplace, I am passionate about empowering professional women to succeed at work while prioritizing their wellbeing. With experience in international non-profit organizations, primarily in communications-related roles, I am also passionate about supporting women through the unique challenges of working in this sector. I have worked and volunteered with organizations such as Girls’ Globe, CARE, See Her Thrive, the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy, the International Association for Premenstrual Disorders, the International Center for Journalists, and Americas/Society Council of the Americas.
Academically, I have focused much of my research on gender-related topics, such as sexual violence in conflict, gender-based violence and migration, and menstrual health and PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder in the workplace.
I have lived in Brazil and the U.S., traveled to England and Germany, and speak Portuguese, English, Spanish, basic French, and some German words.
