Gloria was hired in May of 2022. She works as a Custodian in the Public Works Department and makes sure people get a good impression of the county anytime they enter our facility. She loves working here because she says everyone is so friendly and kind. Her secret for maintaining her awesome positive outlook is to take one day at a time and always realize other people are going through a lot, too.
“Being positive helps the day go by faster,” says Gloria. “I don’t like to be around negativity, so I do my best to keep a positive attitude and make a good impression on coworkers and customers. When people walk through the door, I want them to feel like this is a nice place.”
To relax, Gloria and her husband Allen, who works for Kansas Gas, enjoy spending time on their boat. Taking vacations, especially to the beach in Mexico, is Gloria’s favorite pastime, but family is her number one priority. She and Allen raised their two kids in Olsburg where they owned a grocery store. They recently sold the store to the Farmhouse restaurant and now they spend a lot of time with their four grandchildren.
Since Gloria loves to travel, she’s looking forward to retirement in the hopes of finding a job as a chaise lounge tester for a resort. If such a job exists, I think Gloria would be great at it because she gives her all to everything she does. Please join me in congratulating Gloria for being selected as March’s Employee of the Month!
