Meet Gloria :: RGV Moms Blog Contributor


gloria contributorTell us a little bit about you:

I work part time as an Independent Merchandiser, and I do income taxes. I have a Social Studies degree from UTPA/ UTRGV, and I volunteer at the Mission Historical Museum. I’m currently working on freelance biographical writing and fiction writing. My family attends Conway Avenue Baptist Church and First Baptist Church in Mission, Texas. My husband rescues people and animals while working as a Firefighter with Mission Fire Department. When he’s not working he works on projects at church, plays with our boys, and takes in animals that are hurt or in between permanent homes.
