Feel free to read on if you wish to discover more about Hallie.

Early life and family

Hallie was born on 26 January 1981, but her exact birthplace has not been mentioned on any records, and since she is not an A list celebrity, the finer details of her life have been kept under tight wraps.

She is, however, of American nationality and was born in the United States. Her childhood remains a mystery, as neither she nor her husband have spoken about it publicly to any media or wiki. The earliest facts that can be found concerning her life, is that she had spent some time in Oberlin, Ohio, where she attended college. Her parents are Rock and Stana Gnatovich, and she also has two siblings, brothers Steven and Simognat Gnatovich.

Educational background

Hallie is a very intelligent woman with accomplished credentials behind her name. She is a practising psychiatrist who graduated from Oberlin College in 2004, and furthered her studies in marital and family psychology at Alliant International University in San Diego, California.

She graduated from varsity and earned her Master’s degree in 2010. By the time she had finished her studies, Hallie had already started a career as an actress, and already met her soon-to-be celebrity host husband.

Hallie has since begun her own practice, and holds a license in therapeutic practices, which she earned by working with various institutes.

Hallie started her career as an actress in 2007, but after starring in two titles, she chased a different profession. Hallie briefly appeared in the film “Archer House”, a film about a young student who joins a Texas sorority.

She also starred as a researcher in the show “Monster Hunter” in the same year, where she initially met her husband Josh, who was the host of the show. Unlike Josh’s other shows, “Monster Hunter” focused on investigating international locations of supernatural importance. The title of the show later changed to “Destination Truth”.

Hallie made her first on-screen appearance in the show in 2008, and eventually appeared in a total of eight episodes. In 2015, following her wedding and graduation, Hallie began co-hosting Josh’s show “Expedition Unknown”.

Hallie has also been working as a practising psychiatrist, and has earned her license with certification in mindfulness. In 2009 she began working for Jenesse Centre, a non-profit organization that operates in the US to provide individuals and families impacted by domestic violence and sexual abuse with trauma counselling and holistic healing.

Hallie worked for the organization until 2012, when she earned her practising license. She also worked for the Jewish Family Centre, as well as a consultant for MedAvante-ProPhase as of 2008.

Hallie now has her own firm located in West Hollywood, Los Angeles on Santa Monica Boulevard, that offers a variety of mental health services. Her philosophy in approach to work is based on her passion and admiration for psychology.

Although she mostly works with women, she practices her philosophies on both genders. Among her specialities, she focuses on providing counselling to mothers, women in the workplace and homosexual couple’s therapy.

Hobbies, favourite things and interesting facts

Since most of her life has remained private, not much can be said about Hallie’s personal preferences. However, she is known to be fond of a simple lifestyle, and as mentioned on her professional website dedicated to her practice, enjoys running and keeping fit.

She also practices a specialized school of yoga, namely Kundalini Yoga, a discipline of yoga that is based on the Hindi lore of hidden energy found at the base of the spine, which is released through this special practice. The 39-year-old mother of two is active on social media, and has accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.


Hallie met Josh Gates on the set of “Destination Truth”, and shortly after began dating. The couple married 13 September 2014 at a private ceremony held on the luxury resort grounds of The Hidden Pond Resort in Kennebunkport, New York, Maine.

She gave birth to their firstborn, a son they named Owen on 12 February 2016. Their daughter Isla was born in early 2018.
