Gretchen’s Bio

Rick and Gretchen EllsmoreI grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, and yearned for the big city. I wanted to see, taste, smell, and experience life. I moved to Virginia, and then got married a year later. I have now been married for 24 years!

After I got married, I went to college. I know, I did it backwards compared to most people (smile). In deciding what to major in, I was torn between art and social work. Art won out; however, life has come full circle. Now, I walk with people through the hard and messy places of life. I have experienced this while working at a non-profit that works with prostitutes for 3 years, and then through the experiences of the women I have gotten to know since starting Glass Hearts.

We all have messy and difficult places in our lives! I have had my fair share of struggles too. There have been times when I have had to people around me to help me through those places and times when I have been alone. The alone times are what have impassioned my heart to walk with others.

The older I get the more simple I like things. I enjoy spending time with my three boys and my husband, digging in the dirt, and hiking in the woods.
