“Every great dream begins with a dreamer.  Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the starts to change the world." 
– Harriet Tubman

Gloria was born and raised in Columbia (South America). She attended college while in Columbia and graduated with a degree in Law. She moved to the United States in 1999, looking for better opportunities, and is happy to report that she has been blessed to meet many people who believed in her ability, trusted her decisions, and gave her the support and strength to reach new opportunities.

Gloria is happy to share her experiences with students through the Penn State Talent Search Program. She firmly believes that stepping outside of our comfort zone, and taking risks, is not easy, but is possible.  That this is a country where every person has the opportunity to succeed, no matter what race, language, religion, or country they come from.    

Gloria resides in York, Pennsylvania, with her husband Eric and their three kids, Juliana, Jacob, and Sarah, and a German short-haired pointer named Max. Outside the school, Gloria enjoys dedicating time to the community, and loves outdoors, specially camping and hiking with her family.
