Gloria Mellman - Administrative Assistant
I have lived in Naples since 1995 and have been working at Temple Shalom since 2005. I have a marketing and consumer research degree from Bernard M Baruch College in New York, NY. My favorite thing about working with young children is their honesty and unconditional love. When I'm not at school, I like to teach Jazzercise, read, spend time with my family, and walk on the beach.
