Gloria was born in Hamilton, spent her childhood in Burlington, and teen years in Oshawa. She worked across Canada as a federal revenue administration executive, and had the good fortune to return to Burlington with her husband in 1986 to stay. Prior to full time retirement in 2016, she was a part-time consultant with the International Monetary Fund advising developing countries on improving their revenue collections. This international work spurred a deep understanding of the need to “think globally and act locally”.
Prior to joining BurlingtonGreen on its advocacy team in 2012, Gloria volunteered with Community Development Halton, and worked extensively with the City of Burlington to develop and implement its Engagement Charter. She loves spending time in Burlington’s wonderful open spaces and is passionate about working to mitigate climate change.
Recipient of the 2017 Burlington Best Environmental Award, Gloria proudly served as BurlingtonGreen’s Board President from 2016 to 2020, a Board Director through to August 2022 and currently serves as the Board President.
