Full Bio

Gloria is a great-granddaughter of Dr. Booker T. Washington and is the Founder and President of the Booker T. Washington Inspirational Network, Inc., BTWIN. It is Gloria's belief that it was not by accident that she was born into the bloodline of Booker T. Washington. She, instead, believes that it was a God given gift to provide her a platform from which to share with others the profound spiritual and economic wisdom and the liberating truth embodied in the words and actions of her great-grandfather.


An informal speaker for many years on the life and legacy of her great-grandfather, she has now formally organized her speaking, with others, in an effort to speak out about and to counter the twisted and distorted view that many are taught about her great-grandfather in this politically correct age. She has a passion to challenge and inspire individuals to strive to live by the powerful values based ideals set forth by her great-grandfather. Whether it is through public speaking or writing, Gloria's aim is to inspire others to use the full arsenal of their God-given gifts and talents to build productive lives of which they can be proud.


Gloria holds an undergraduate degree from San Jose State University and a law degree from UCLA. She has worked as a counselor and a mortgage broker and she has practiced law in Los Angeles. She was blessed to travel extensively when she worked as a flight attendant for American and Continental Airlines. Gloria is currently an attorney and a real estate broker, and she resides in Los Angeles where, in addition to her responsibilities with BTWIN, she runs a real estate investment firm.


Gloria's book, co-authored with her cousin Sarah Rush, Timeless Treasures - Reflections of God's Word in the Wisdom of Booker T. Washington, was released in April 2006. The book was written as a tribute to their great-grandfather and his legacy.
