Gabriela “Gaby” Cavins

Director of Employee Success

"It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a Villyge to raise a working parent. From new parent and lactation support to career coaching, I’m honored to serve as part of the movement to remove the stigma around working parenthood. With the right support, tools and resources, you can exceed your goals at home and at work. I’m thrilled to support working parents as a member of their Villyge!”

Gaby Cavins is a Navy Veteran who brings a team mentality to the home and office. She is a Certified Lactation Educator counselor, return-to-work expert and working mother of two. Gaby is also on the Board of Directors for the California Breastfeeding Coalition. As Director of Employee Success, Gaby is on the frontlines every day helping working parents navigate the “how tos” of working parenthood. Her coaching specialties include breastfeeding, sleep and navigating career adjustments, and helping working parents achieve their personal goals and professional success.

During her tenure on active duty, Gaby provided counsel and training from junior to senior leadership, managed training and readiness for nearly 400 personnel, and developed and implemented lactation policies at various levels. She continues to be a sought-after mentor and advocate for breastfeeding mothers who need policy support, best-pumping practices and mental health resources within the military.
