  • Hi,
    This is Fabiola Jean Gilles. I worked at Corporation counsel with you when I was in law school. I was looking for you and didn’t know where to find you. I just heard your voice on the ICWA training. I went online and found you. I was not living in New York. I came back this past Summer.
    I would love to hear from you.
