Gabel has experience in several facets of the hospitality industry. Most recently, Gabel was a senior vice president with Wyndham Worldwide’s Hospitality Division.

Prior to her Orlando residency, Gabel held positions with Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Millennium Hotels and Resorts, and Intercontinental Hotels.

It is particularly rewarding that net profits generated from this project will be directed to a scholarship endowment for students of Rollins College, thanks to a generous contribution by the Alfond Foundation.”
