Nadine Gabbadon-Robbins

Nadine is an Assistant Dean for Advising in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania.  Nadine has a PhD in Communications from the University of Pennsylvania and has published several articles in peer-reviewed academic journals related to her research interest in advertising, mass media industries, and the social and industrial construction of age.  Prior to her current position at Penn, Nadine worked as a professor at Lincoln University where she taught Communications.  

Nadine was born in Jamaica but migrated to the US when she was a young child.  She has served Jalawelo continuously behind the scenes in a variety of roles since its inception.  She has a passion for doing creative projects around the house and decorating and would love one day to direct this passion towards helping those who are less privileged and have limited resources use what they have to create living spaces that are positive and inspiring.

Nadine currently resides in Philadelphia with her husband Dan and their son Nathan.
