After completing her education, Gloria shifted into data analysis and imagery in the tech industry, and soon excelled into a project management position.
In 2022, Gloria refocused on her passion for marketing and joined the Gidel & Kocal Construction team as their Marketing Coordinator. With her knowledge in construction working as an assistant taper with her dad during her teenage years and her growing experience in social media, CRM/CM data systems, graphic design, UX/UI, promotions and campaigning, she hits the floor running and ready for any challenge.
On her free time, Gloria supports dog rescues, environmental activism and the plant-based movement, and volunteers at farm animal rescue sanctuaries.

When asked about what she is most excited about joining the Gidel & Kocal team, she said, “Working construction is a nostalgic memory for me where I spent time not only working with family but with teams that felt close-knit and supportive like family. Before joining Gidel & Kocal, I could already sense the family-like atmosphere and now being in office, it’s full of laughter, good stories and hard workers.”
