Gloria started working as an Admission Representative for Florida National University in 2005 in the distance learning department. The University had signed a contract with the US Navy to provide A.A and B.A degrees. FNU strives for academic excellence bei ng a SACS approved University. Gloria’s father had been in the Navy and the military held a special place in her heart. The director of military affairs requested Gloria to initiate enrollment process for their first military students, thus, her love for the military re-ignited. Gloria related well with her students establishing a wonderful connection with every single one. She was reliable, efficient, focused and a cooperative team member in the Military Department at FNU. Gloria has traveled to Camp Pendl eton in San Diego, California for educational fairs for the U.S Marines and has participated in events at Homestead Air Reserve Base in Homestead, Florida and The American Legion Post 29 just to name a few.
Gloria’s main goal is to spread the word regarding R.E.D Fridays, a cause she has supported for the past 11 years by wearing RED on Fridays to Remember Everyone Deployed. She is currently splitting her time between Florida and Jacksonville, NC; home to Camp LeJeune the Marine Corps Installation East, Marine Corps Base. Gloria’s goal is to start her project of support in this military community and continue carrying the message to the national levels. Her idea is showing solidarity and support for our troops every Friday until all our troops come home.
