Gloria is a Registered Nurse at Hudson Heights Pediatrics. She was born and raised in Howard County, Maryland and graduated from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2013 with a bachelor's degree in neuroscience. After working at a pediatric urgent care clinic, she loved the nurse practitioner role so much that she switched career tracks from pre-medical to pre-nursing. Gloria then completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Johns Hopkins in 2015 and is now studying to become a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at Columbia. She hopes to work as a PNP in the private practice setting, and as she has experience volunteering abroad in Peru and Nepal, Gloria hopes to continue serving on medical missions in the future. In her spare time, she attempts to recreate her mother's home-cooked Korean dishes, and enjoys hiking, tennis, football, and being with kids!
