Trazana Staples

Trazana Staples began her duties as the new Executive Director of Gabriel’s Place on August 4. She succeeds Myrita Craig, who left in July to pursue a Ph.D. in public health at Boston University.

Trazana is a native of Cincinnati, and grew up in the Avondale and Kennedy Heights and Forest Park neighborhoods. She holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Law and Policy, a BS in Management and Human Relations and an Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice. Her passion for sustainable living caused her to get a certification in Permaculture. The Gabriel’s Place board is thrilled to have her as the leader of an extremely dedicated staff.

Next time you are in Cincinnati, please stop by Gabriel’s Place (3618 Reading Road in Avondale) and introduce yourself to Trazana, Chef Kristen St. Clair and Garden Manager Chad Cully. And if you come on Tuesday between 4 and 6 p.m., you can also enjoy a delicious meal with neighbors from throughout the community!
