In 1998, after studying at Dalhousie University, Glori came to Edmonton and founded the full-service marketing agency g[squared]. Glori has been named a Women of Inspiration by the Universal Women’s Network and was a Woman of Worth Honouree by L’Oreal Paris Canada in 2020. She was also named one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women by the Women’s Executive Network and one of the Top 40 Canadians Under 40 by Caldwell Partners International, and in 2022 was honoured with the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee and the  Meritorious Service Decoration in 2020. Glori is also a proud member of YPO’s Alberta Chapter.

As a survivor of child sexual abuse, Glori has also endured unspeakable trauma. Recently, a struggle with stage 3 cervical cancer brought her life to a halt. She began a journey of rediscovering her faith, practicing self-love and focusing on her mental health. She has discovered resiliency, love and hope by being a voice for vulnerable children, and by advocating for social change in the business and non-profit communities. Glori leads her life from a place of love, not fear.
