Luca and Gretchen Campello

IMG_26012014_225743Gretchen, the middle child of Carl and Mary, grew up completely immersed in the culture of ranch life and Oklahoma.

After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in Letters, Gretchen began working with children through the CASA organization with the intent of continuing on in a career in the diplomatic core.

Life took a different course when in 2001 she met a young Italian pilot named Luca Campello and from that point on, they were inseparable.  Having lived and worked in various places across the globe due to Luca’s career as an Experimental Test Pilot with the Italian Air Force, Gretchen and Luca now call Rome Italy their home.  They often travel home to Oklahoma for extended visits however and hope to one day settle on the ranch with their two children Giorgia Elaine and Matteo Alexander.
