Gloria joined her husband Preston at Rock Steady after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2009. Gloria has always given of her time to support the RSB mission. She is a mother of 4, a grandmother of 6, a “Cornerman” / Carepartner, a RSB Volunteer Coach, and one of the three RSB “Twisted Sisters.”
Gloria is from New Hampshire and Preston is from Georgia. They met in 1976, while they were both serving in the Finance & Accounting Corps of the U.S. Army and were married within the next 40 days. Prior to coming to RSB Gloria worked as an Executive Secretary for over 15 years for the Defense Finance and Accounting Services. She supported Military pay, Commercial Accounts and Civilian Pay.
Gloria understands the challenges of Parkinson’s and the benefits of this program to her husband and others at the gym. She is always reaching out to others with kindness, a smile and a kick in the butt when needed. She cheers them on and keeps them moving forward.
