Gayle is currently the CEO/Owner of The Whole Enchilada Branding and Marketing Company in Connecticut.
She began her career at Young & Rubicam as an art director. She later joined other large agencies, eventually becoming Executive Vice President/Creative Director at Foote Cone & Belding. It was there she created the “I’m Gonna Wash That Gray Right Outta My Hair” campaign for Clairol, making it number one in its category.
On a new adventure in the 1970’s, she co-wrote, cast and co-produced “The Lords of the Flatbush", a memorable cult classic starring Sylvester Stallone and Henry Winkler in their first movie.
In 1980 she opened her own advertising agency in NYC, Gleckler & Partners and grew it to $17 million in billings.
Always interested in writing, she wrote and illustrated a children's book in 2011, “Milo My Stray Cat”. Continuing her new passion, she co-wrote and published “Momoirs”, a collection of short stories about motherhood.
For the last ten years Gayle has been sharing art with her husband, Tony Woolner. Their show, “Gayle & Tony’s Travels”, opened at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists in October 2016.
In 2016 alone, she has had 14 art shows, including a solo show in the Cultural Alliance of Connecticut; “Visions of Southeast Asia” and Beechwood Arts “Transform”. She was juried in as a new member SPAG (St. Philips Artist Guild).
December 2, 2016, Gayle and Tony are introducing a brand new show, “Perusing Peru” at The Rockwell Gallery in Connecticut.
