Gabriela became the first female Spanish-language sports television reporter in the U.S. when she was hired by Univision Sports in 1996. At Univision, Gabriela was the sideline reporter for Major League Soccer (MLS) live telecasts and she was part of the Univision news team that won the prestigious Edward R.

Gabriela moved on to ESPN in Bristol, Connecticut just prior to the launch of ESPN Deportes as a 24-hour Spanish-language TV network serving the U.S. Hispanic market in February 2004. When Gabriela's boss asked her if she wanted to announce poker in Spanish for audiences in Mexico and Latin America, Gabriela jumped right in. Since then, she had become known as the voice of the World Series of Poker in Latin America and her voice was heard in over 20 countries from Mexico to Argentina as well as the U.S. Besides calling every WSOP Main Event Final Table from 2004 to 2008, Gabriela voiced over 300 hours of poker television.
