Gloria joined the UUA staff in May 2021 as the Retirement Plan Employer Liaison and now serves as Retirement Plan Director. Gloria brings a wealth of skills and a can-do spirit to her new role at a dynamic time in the life of the Retirement Plan!
Gloria is thrilled to take on the challenges presented to the UU Retirement Plan as we conduct a search for and transition to a new recordkeeper at the end of 2022/early 2023.
Gloria began her career in non-profit professional theater and performing arts management. After taking a pause to raise her young children, Gloria served as the Business Administrator for the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia (USG) for ten years, where she is also a member.
Inspired by our UU values, she strives to be an engaged and responsible citizen. Thus when the opportunity arose, she jumped at the chance to use her technology and data skills to support two political campaigns in 2020 to advance progressive values.
As a member of the AUUA and with her experience at USG, Gloria will leverage her knowledge of UU organizational management and technology to create best practices, reduce friction in our systems, and find ways to best support UU Employers who adopt the denominational retirement plan.
Originally from the Midwest, Gloria currently lives in the Philadelphia area with her husband and two children. She enjoys long walks, yoga, sunny days, connecting with friends, and is especially looking forward to being able to travel again.
