Gloria was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, a third-generation American. Gloria's parents were both in the service industry and she herself worked at a coffee shop during high school. Following her graduation Gloria worked with her parents at what had essentially become a family-run cafe, a couple of years going by before she met her future husband. By the time her first son was born Gloria's parents had become owners of the cafe only to sell it for a nice profit and retire. While Gloria did get some money from the cafe deal she returned to work, getting a job at Bean There.
Gloria ended up assistant manager at Bean There but shortly after returning from maternity leave due to the birth of her second son Jessica Alfa was discovered at the coffee shop. Not a fan of exploiting a former employee, Gloria was railroaded by the manager and eventually let go. To continue to support her family Gloria worked at multiple coffee shops while also taking business courses at a night school. Rebecca Mosley, a woman Gloria had met during her time at Bean There, ended up hiring her to be the new barista at Persephone's Books. Well-respected at her new job, Gloria made fast friends with most of her staff, in particular Maggie Yen. Gloria's growing business knowledge and years of experience ended up making her the one Jamie Mosley, who took over after Rebecca, entrusted the store to when she moved to Houston with her new wife Chloe Noi. Thought uneasy about the arrangement Gloria kept Calista Suvari on as assistant manager, only for her to fire Maggie without her consent. Gloria tried to get Maggie to come back but they ended up parting ways amicably.
