Professionally, Gloria worked as the Planetarium Educator for the Vanderbilt Planetarium on Long Island for several years before moving on to a new position at the American Museum of Natural History/Hayden Planetarium. There, she had the privilege of working with an outstanding group of volunteers as the Supervisor of the Earth and Space Explainer Program for the new Rose Center for Earth and Space before moving on to become the Director of the Novins Planetarium in Toms River, New Jersey. Gloria also stays actively involved with amateur astronomy groups, the Earth and Space Explainer Program, and professional organizations such as the Middle Atlantic Planetarium Society and the International Planetarium Society.
