Hi. I’m Gloria.

I’m a journalist based in North Lake Tahoe, California. I write longform features and essays.

My stories have won awards, been recommended by Longform and Longreads, and been recognized as Best American Essays and Best American Sports Writing notables. Most recently, a feature I wrote won Gold in the News/Investigative Reporting category for the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism awards. Previously, I was the features editor for Outside Magazine, and I’m still a contributing editor there. My byline also appears in The Atlantic, Cosmopolitan, BICYCLING, Runner’s World, 5280, and other publications, and I’m currently reporting stories for Men’s Health, Travel + Leisure, Campside Media, and Meadowlark Media. In a past life, I worked in financial services. When I’m not writing, I’m up in the mountains, skiing or riding my bike.
