Hi, I'm Luci Gabel


What Clients Have Said

 Fresh, new and different.

     Exciting and cutting-edge.

About Me

 I'm currently partner at Tipping Point Strategists, instructor at San Jose State University and George Washington University School of Medicine department of Clinical Research and Leadership. Along with experience and multiple advanced degrees in business, nutrition, and physiology, I’ve held leadership roles in the Department of Defense and private companies, and have been an entrepreneur and start-up founder. I'm not an armchair theorist—I've been there, done that. I've also dared to do things differently—and succeeded.

I've succeeded at keeping my high standards, values, health, integrity, authenticity, empathy and kindness in the workplaces I've run while at the same time make money and have teams that thrive.  I can help you do the same. 

I love traveling. I’ve lived and worked in Seoul, South Korea; New York City; Washington, DC; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Silicon Valley. While working I completed my black belt in Tae Kwon Do, finished triathlons and other races, and kept a highly active and healthy lifestyle. These were my dreams. I'll share from experience that businesses and leaders have the same challenges everywhere. You're not alone and you're not the first to have them. You deserve a caring coach and smart strategist at your side during the difficult times so you can run the company and live the life that fits your dreams. I will be that for you.


I live in Los Angeles

and I work virtually with clients around the world. I understand the subtle differences in cultures, people's needs and difficulties, and how we can work across all kinds of boundaries with skill.

"Luci delivered more than expected, and my expectations were high. When we met for our first session, she engaged quickly and parsed through lots of new and disorganized information to identify and hone in on a critical thread to make quick progress and impact— she cut through a LOT of noise to make our time together beneficial to me; that was impressive."
