As an Army dependent, McGloon grew up all over the world. She was fortunate to receive an Army scholarship for nursing school.

At her first duty station, she was given an unexpected assignment to be the charge nurse of a pediatric clinic. This experience made her realize how much she really enjoyed being involved in the healthcare of children and how much she wanted to further her pediatric training.

After completing the Army pediatric nurse practitioner course, she was assigned to Monterey, Calif., where she met her husband, who served in the Navy.

After 10 years in the Army, she transferred to the Navy and was able to continue her military career as a PNP for 14 more years, including several deployments, a humanitarian mission to the Philippines and South Pacific, Desert Shield and Desert Storm. She also provided healthcare for children and adults with cancer. 

In the Navy, McGloon was fortunate to work with Dr. David Norris, the founding medical director of General Booth Pediatrics. She has been working with the General Booth Pediatrics team for over 10 years. During that time, her two incredible children (now young adults) received fabulous care at the practice.

McGloon feels it is an amazing honor and a privilege to work with such phenomenal CHKD pediatricians. 

She enjoys spending time with family and friends, sports, sketching and painting portraits, music, and all that Virginia Beach and the surrounding areas have to offer.
