Dr. Gloria began her career as a high school science teacher and athletic trainer, affectionately called "Doc" by her student-athletes. Having worked wth elite athletes in nearly every sport offered in Texas schools, she's seen just about every injury that a person can endure. From the repetitive motion strain of a golf swing and bones broken on a soccer field, to football helmets impacting at high speed, she's seen it all.
Fortunately for her patients, that also means she knows how to treat, rehab, and return them to a high level of activity.
Further, when she arrived in Amarillo, she accepted a teaching position at Amarillo College as a professor of Anatomy and Physiology.
She brings that immense wealth of knowledge and working experience to her office for the benefit of her patients. Dr. Gloria is an Amarillo chiropractor and so much more!
