Meet Malindi Gabelhouse, associate director at Mosaic in Southeast Nebraska ( and Mosaic in Omaha.

Tell us a little about your business. – We see people as unique, beloved and important. We listen to what matters to you and help you lead a meaningful, healthy life on your terms.

We meet you where you are because we’ve been there. We’ve been excluded, unwelcome and in need of help. When things get hard – and they will – we will be there to see you through. We’re problem solvers and connectors. We partner with people to create meaningful lives in caring communities, giving a voice to people’s needs.

Our team harnesses data, processes and technology to provide high-quality services to as many people in need as we can. We build relationships to drive outcomes for communities, funders, families and, most importantly, the people we serve.

How did you get started in the business? – Ever since I was young, my desire to assist others has been strong. Our world is filled with negativity and discrimination towards those who do not fit society’s standards. I believe people with disabilities have amazing abilities and deserve the same respect as anyone else. We are all human and have only one life to live. Helping others achieve their goals and aspirations is my passion and purpose in life.

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – I love spending time outdoors, whipping up delicious meals in the kitchen and even tackling household chores. When I’m not busy, I enjoy spending time with my furry friend, Douglas, and my close circle of friends.

I derive happiness from all things nature-related, be it taking care of my garden, unwinding on my front porch, or going for a motorcycle ride.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know? – During my youth, I had a strong passion for rugby. I participated in the UNL rugby team and also joined a women’s rugby club. Additionally, I explored various martial arts such as karate and judo.

Who inspires you? – My late father was truly a remarkable figure in my life. His teachings were invaluable, and his wisdom and guidance have continued to inspire me long after his passing. I am forever grateful for the lessons he imparted to me, and I strive to live up to his example every day.

What is your favorite quote or the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? – My goal is to travel the world and immerse myself in diverse cultures as much as possible. These experiences hold immense value as they are unique to me and can never be taken away.

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” – Helen Keller.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? – Invisibility.

If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be? – I would love to become a surgeon because the ability to repair and heal the human body is truly remarkable art. Saving lives and enhancing people’s quality of life is simply amazing.

If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be? – Elton John.
