Gabby Reeve, MPP
Gabby is passionate about the rights of young people and adults to access accurate sexual health information and high-quality sex education. Her commitment to improving sex ed can probably be traced back to her freshman year at a Catholic university where her (still flawed but medically accurate) high school sex ed knowledge turned her into an unofficial sexuality information office for her entire dorm. She wants to work towards a world where every school has the resources to provide a sex education experience that is affirming, informative, empowering and fun for all students.
Gabby recently graduated from the Heller School at Brandeis University with a Master's Degree in Public Policy and a concentration in Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies. She is a returned Peace Corps volunteer who served as a teacher and sex educator in the Philippines. Four years later she has still not reacclimated to New England winters. She also worked as a Violence Prevention Educator at Brandeis University and sees consent focused sex education as an important tool to prevent sexual violence and harassment and to help communities provide meaningful support for those impacted by violence and to implement restorative justice when consent is violated.
Gabby’s other passions include podcasting, Star Trek, defunding the police, running, Kim Kardashian, the six wives of Henry VIII, reading, bi visibility, Stephen King, antiracism, grapefruits, and perfecting her jump kicks.
