Owner/President, Global Village Travels, Inc.®
Gloria Hobbins was born in Grenada then migrated to Brooklyn, NY in 1969. She graduated from Hunter College in New York City with a Bachelor of Arts degree in French and Spanish, pursued graduate studies in French and Linguistics at the University of Besancon, France, and holds a Master of Science in Travel and Tourism Management from New York University. She is a Certified Travel Counselor (CTC) of The Travel Institute and an Accredited Cruise Counselor (ACC) of the Cruise Lines International Association. Gloria knew by age seven, when she took her first airplane ride, that travel would become a significant part of her life. This intuition eventually led to the development of her travel consulting company. After a 26-year detour through corporate America, she is now where she wants to be. Gloria founded Global Village Travels® in 1996 to impart to others the excitement that she herself experiences as she travels the globe. Global Village Travels® specializes in customized independent travel, incentive travel, special interest cruises and tours developed around the specific interest of the individual or group and travel designed just for women. This professional vacation planner loves what she does and cannot wait to get you on your way to faraway places with strange sounding names. Come, Travel in Our Circle® and let us help you explore the Global Village.
