She seemed different and soon the staff realized that she had Asperger syndrome. Straight away Gabrielle proved to be an excellent surgeon but seemed to lack social ability. Her social disabiltiy annoyed some of the senior nurses including Tania Jeffries. A man came to Gabrielle requesting suregory, but she could not do it seeing as they once had an affair. But eventually she went through with the surgeory and saved his life. Gabrielle had a short relationship to Kip Denton. He was not aware of her Aspergers and did not understand her absurd behaviour. He was tired from her all sex, no talk attitude and once he found out she had Aspergers, he let her go much to Gabrielles confusion.

She told Chris, Luke and Libby that she was not attracted to Luke and did not want to have sex with him, this made Luke very upset and he was about ot resign until Libby made Gabrielle apologise and Gabrielle and his unique friendship started again. At Chris and Libbys leaving party, Chris confessed his love of Gabrille to Libby over a microphone by accident.
