“Gloria is such a supportive, nurturing, and empathetic coach that I was very comfortable discussing my uncertainties and questions. With her great guidance, I was able to better see the connections in my views of work and other life demands. With her encouragement and coaching, I was able to see the pattern of my decisions and really think about what I am truly passionate about and how that intersects with my skills/talents.” – S. Chen
