Master of Public Policy



Gabby Rivera is a first-year graduate student and recently completed her undergrad degree with majors in Political Science, International Studies, and Honors Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts. She currently works with the health policy non-profit Health Action NM as an office administrator and policy assistant, and previously worked an internship in Ireland for the political advocacy organization Young People at Risk. Beyond the realm of public policy, Gabby plays rugby for the UNM Women’s Rugby team and serves as a coach, referee, and administrator for youth rugby across the state. She is excited to explore her potential in both rugby and public policy over the next two years at UNM and beyond, and to forge lasting professional and personal connections along the way.
