Our Advisory Board
Gabrielle (Gabby) Wimer graduated in 2016 from the University of Chicago where she studied the history of medicine and human rights. She first joined Paper Airplanes as a tutor in the fall of 2016 and quickly fell in love with the organization and its mission. Through January 2021, Gabby lived in Amman, Jordan and served as our Managing Director. Prior to that Gabby worked in Guatemala running a program she co-founded called MealFlour which collaborates with local organizations to teach people how to raise mealworms as a more affordable source of protein. In her spare time, she likes to hike, read, and continue her quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.
