Serial entrepreneur, global wanderer, thrillseeker, single mom
A child of parents both heavily involved in the travel industry, Gabriella Ribeiro Truman was born to do her job. A seasoned professional with over 13 years of experience in the industry, she began her career as Advertising/Marketing Manager at GOGO Worldwide Vacations for over 6 years, the leading travel wholesaler in the US. There, she designed and executed creative marketing programs and plans for a wide variety of hotels and tourist boards, while managing relationships with air partners as well. Gabriella has extensive knowledge of the Caribbean, Europe, and Mexico, and has visited hundreds of hotels globally so chances are she is quite familiar with your product as well. A graduate of Boston University, Gabriella also holds an MBA in marketing.
By day she owns and operates Trumarketing, an innovative boutique sales and marketing firm where she utilizes her expertise and contacts in both travel and the media to her clients’ advantage. The firm represents tourist boards and hotel partners around the world, and is dedicated to bringing each partner creative solutions and increased distribution channels, while integrating their needs into an overall campaign including promotional opportunities and tactical sales efforts. Her passion for travel is unrivaled, and her enthusiasm about this industry is refreshing and exciting.
By night, she runs Explorateur Journeys, a boutique curator of authentic, immersive journeys for globally curious travelers as well as the popular Explorateur e-newsletter and recently launched online magazine. Both deliver insider travel tips, honest hotel reviews and exclusive deals for subscribers only.
Gabriella has also recently launched the 48 Hour Power Jaunt where she plans 48 hour adventures for busy women entrepreneurs. As a single mom who is an avid traveler and entrepreneur, she is proof you can have the trip of a lifetime in 2 days!
Gabriella also owns The Mogul Mom, the world’s premiere site and community for dynamic ladies with sparkle who are raising a family, running a business and rocking both. She motivates women to build businesses and launch their dreams while inspiring entrepreneurs to take their game to the next level personally and professionally.
Her travels for both work and leisure take her around the world year after year, and despite the schedule, Gabriella actively works with an orphanage in South Africa, striving to raise funds and assist with securing volunteer doctors to provide medical care for children in need.
