GERRY’s Background

Gerry is a first-generation, born-and-raised New Yorker hailing from the Bronx!

In her unwavering pursuit of amplifying diverse voices and underrepresented perspectives in media and travel, she established DOMINICAN ABROAD, a powerful platform that has resonated with audiences worldwide. With an ever-growing community of over 400,000 monthly readers + social media followers, Gerry’s trailblazing work has become a testament to the hunger for BIPOC creative narratives.

While Gerry proudly calls NYC her home, she remains deeply rooted in her Caribbean heritage, infusing her experiences with cultural richness, showing people how to travel meaningfully, highlighting natural wonders, cultural gems (including art, food, movies, and books), and other unique experiences.

Gerry’s inspiring story also goes beyond her professional achievements. Despite her autoimmune disease, chronic allergies, and asthma, she actively manages these physical disabilities to still enjoy travel and the outdoors.

Today, she is based out of beautiful Brooklyn, has visited over 50 countries, and speaks 2.5 languages.
