Berneice CoxMeet Gloria Pugh

Recognize this beautiful lady? Gloria Pugh is a hardworking, determined woman who is thriving in the Big Bend. Whether she is giving back to the community, working out in her favorite TRX class or running AMWAT Moving Warehousing Storage with her husband, she is always on the move. As a first-generation American whose parents immigrated from Colombia, Gloria grew up steps away from the beach. So naturally, if you ask her where her ideal day takes place, it’s no surprise she’ll tell you it’s anywhere she can stick her toes in the sand, relax in the water and get back to her roots.

If you have the pleasure of talking to Gloria, you’ll quickly notice how each word she speaks carries passion. This is particularly evident when she speaks about her husband, Dean. While he is convinced it was love at first sight, Gloria sees how their love has continued to grow into an inspiring bond that has overflowed into everything she does. She pours love back into the community as a thank you for the experience and opportunities she has had from living in America. Despite her on-the-go lifestyle, Gloria takes time to remember the importance of health, happiness, an optimistic outlook and one's self-worth. A true force to be reckoned with, Gloria is a confident community powerhouse.
