Gloria Shipley

Director of Business Development

Gloria graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1999 with a BS in Chemical Engineering. Upon graduation, she accepted a position at Merck & Co., Inc. in Albany, GA. She held various positions at Merck’s pharmaceutical manufacturing facility until her resignation in 2005 after the birth of her son, Lane. Her responsibilities there included oversite of day-to-day manufacturing operations, ensuring adherence to regulatory agency requirements, such as the FDA and the EPA, and coordination of relations between the plant management staff and the union elected officials for the hourly operating staff.

After resigning from Merck & Co., Inc. in 2005 to be a stay-at-home mother, Gloria continued on this path until Lane was in school full time for 1st grade in 2011. At that time, Gloria decided to take on a full time role in the family financial practice, Sagemark Consulting. Since 2011, she has served as the Practice Manager for StoneBridge Advisors, and more recently, the Director of Business Development. Gloria holds Series 7 and Series 66 licenses, in addition to being Life and Health Insurance Licensed. She supports Ken Shipley to offer comprehensive financial planning services to individuals and business owners.

Gloria believes that clients should walk away from StoneBridge Advisors feeling empowered with knowledge, confident of the decisions that have been made with their advisor, knowing that they received appropriate sound advice motivated by meeting the clients’ agenda and needs, and that our staff desires to serve them in an unparalleled manner.

Gloria was born in 1977 in Kingsport, TN. She currently resides in Knoxville, TN.
