Fields: First Steps

Gloria – a Taos native, was born and raised in the community of Arroyo Seco. Gloria received a Bachelor of Science with emphasis in Computer Science and Math. Upon graduation, she was employed by the Department of Navy as a software developer.

In 1992, Gloria returned back home to New Mexico and continued her software development journey with NM Energy & Minerals and NM Department of Transportation in Santa Fe. Duties consisted of software development and acquiring and reporting state and federal funds for NMDOT.

With 25 years of service, she retired from the state departments.

For her love of Taos, Gloria and her husband raised their son on their commuting journeys to work in Santa Fe. Gloria comes from a long line of farmers where her family still harvests many fruits from their orchard planted in the early 1930s. Gloria finds peace in the outdoors.
