My personal story


I’m originally from Venezuela, but I have been living in Florida since 2002. I’m a passionate educator who love sharing with everybody the experiences and pieces of knowledge I collect in my journey.  Why Dr. G? My married name (Gambuzza)  is not too easy for my students to pronounce so they started calling me Dr. G. I have to confess, I like it! 

After a decade of teaching and leading under mindful leadership principles, I felt a need to share “my practices" so other can lead happy, like me! 

I have taught thousands of students, led hundreds of faculty, and guide many business leaders. But, as I dove deep into mindfulness and meditation, I decided to dedicate my second career to plant seeds of greatness in others. 

I am not a coach; I am mentor. Yes, I have studied, and I have certifications that support my work. Check my LinkedIn for more details. 

My mission is to support the development of compassionate leaders, whether at work or home, so we all can create a better collective reality, which a call Automagic!
