Jumping hurdles was a way of life for Gloria on her path to achieving her impossible dream. The hurdles depicted in this video, are some of which we all can relate to. But for her, it was compounded by teen-pregnancy, domestic violence, and homelessness. It was out of her own traumatic experiences both in her personal and work life, that she learned to be intentional in adding value to others.
Eleanor Roosevelt says, “Do one thing every day that scares you.” Every day since March 2016, Gloria has done just that. She retired from full-time employment in 2016, and started Exodus. Today, she can be found intentionally adding value to others by sharing her 21 plus years of diverse experience gained in the Air Force, Cleaning Industry, Facilities & Property Management, Employee Relations, Health Care Management, Financial Management, and Leadership Development to pull out of others, their untapped potential and limiting beliefs holding them back from living their God-given Purpose.
In addition to serving as Principle/CEO of Exodus, She is an Independent Certified member of the John Maxwell Team of global Speakers, Trainers, and Coaches. Gloria specializes in Cleaning for Health implementation, Leadership Development, and YouthMax programs. She is an Alumna of The University of Southern Mississippi, The Community College of the Air Force, and Tougaloo College. She is married to David Strauthers and is a resident of the State of Georgia and they have a blended family of five, and are the proud Grandparents of one Grandson.

Since 2016, Gloria has served as Chapter President of IEHA Georgia Coastal. Gloria is an Air Force Veteran who received the Air Force Achievement Medal and is no stranger to the Service of Others. Her Servant leadership has paved the way for key-positions on non-profit boards and serving within her community.
