Gabe York, Director of Operations

Gabe York spent a career in retail executive management and human resources, before he and his husband Brian adopted a baby, in 2012. Parenthood changed him. Despite his passion for finding and developing talent among employees, he couldn’t bring himself to go back to the fast-paced career that would demand he leave his daughter, five days a week. So, he became a stay-at-home dad, developing new skill sets and new priorities, and a new business as a real estate agent and interior designer.

A few years later, Gabe and Brian adopted a boy. In searching for an educational opportunity that met the needs of both children, they found Clay-Platte Montessori School. He joined the administrative staff in August 2018, bringing his wealth of skills and knowledge to the team. In his role, as Director of Operations, he oversees the buildings and grounds, purchasing, and more. It is his eye for design that continues to develop the main building and Hill House spaces.
