Gloria Garcia was a Chicago Cook-County Sheriff’s Police Officer, training under the Special Operations Response Team. She now works as a Female Bodyguard to High Profile Individuals.
Upon taking a hiatus from the world of law enforcement in 2002, Gloria founded Mudd Fleur in Chicago. Despite no formal training, she quickly became the floral designer for Oprah Winfrey, Heidi Klum, and Ralph Lauren. It’s no surprise that ABC and Fox Network described her as the ‘Latina Wonder Woman’. In 2007, Gloria sold her company to an employee and a former competitor at a sum below its market value, stating: “Employees are who help you get to the top and rivals are who keep you on your toes”. Mudd Fleur continues to trade in Chicago today.
Gloria is a trained actor, appearing in the 2015 blockbuster ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. She will also star in the upcoming Marvel movie ‘Morbius’.
The ability to communicate effectively and develop trust quickly in high-pressured environments means Gloria can speak authentically on how to nurture purpose, clarity and cohesion within teams.
Gloria’s love of being a Bodyguard, Actor and a Business Woman lie on the same ethos which she has lived and led her whole life:
• Finding your passion will create your purpose
• Trust yourself and your Team
• Remain determined and focused
• Be ready for any changes and see them as positive
• Always be accountable
• Consistent Learning is crucial in being a great Team-player
• Compassion, empathy and humility are the key to success
Gloria is available for conference, keynote and public speaking regarding these topics and is also available for workshops on communication, strategy, change, team building and business management.
Gloria’s personal love is taking care of orphaned children in Puebla Mexico where her Father’s origin lies.
