Gayle grew up in southern Ohio and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing from Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati. After school, she moved to Illinois, where she worked in the medical field and completed a post-graduate degree as a family nurse practitioner.
In 1995, Gayle relocated to southeast Louisiana, falling in love with southern food and the culture. There, she raised her two children. She quickly discovered northwest Florida beaches and 30A, purchased a lot in Rosemary Beach and built two homes. Later, she managed her own vacation rentals while still working as a family nurse practitioner. In 2012, she moved to 30A permanently.
A resident of Seaside with her husband, Richard Jabbour, Gayle enjoys living in a walkable community and taking advantage of the 30A bike path and running, biking or walking the trails of Watercolor. She also enjoys playing tennis as a team member of the Rosemary Beach Racquet Club.
Her love of homes, architecture, building and designing over the years led her to a career in real estate. She has fun helping others find their dream property at the beach.
