Lab Member Spotlight

This Lab Member Spotlight is Gaby Trier. Gaby works as the lab coordinator and is graduating this upcoming May. We wish her the best of luck in the future!

Hometown: Crystal Lake, IL

DPQoL Involvement: Right now I am working on the FaMe study which is developing a wearable fall detection device. I have been apart of this study for around two years. Currently I also work as the lab coordinator. As the lab coordinator I am responsible for monitoring the social media / email as well as updating the website periodically.

Career Goals: I am a senior majoring in kinesiology with a minor in disability studies. I am on the pre- physical therapy track and will be attending physical therapy school this summer at Northern Illinois University. My career goal is to become a pediatric physical therapist and work to help children with disabilities.

Favorite Thing About Champaign/Urbana: My favorite thing about Urbana-Champaign is that I have made such great friends on campus. I always have something to do and I have such a great support system on campus!

Enjoyment Outside of School/Work: I volunteer with Illini Service Dogs. I take weekly sessions with a service dog and I love getting to see the dogs grow and learn overtime!
