Maria Cruz

Maria has quickly become one of our most valuable coaches. Both students and parents rave about her awesome personality and excitement for success. Having previously worked in stressful environments, Maria has learned to keep her cool early-on. Her calm demeanor has helped her students also stay calm during the lessons. She is a great listener and understands the fear new drivers have when they first get behind the wheel. She feels very accomplished when her students say, “I did it” or “I passed the driving test!” Those moments make her proud and happy to be part of their driving adventures. In the end, Maria claims that “it was all in the student. I was just there to help.” 

Favorite meals:  Mexican food (obviously), Mongolian BBQ, and anything that has to do with breakfast….. don’t forget the COFFEE!

Gloria Vega

Gloria has always had a passion to make a difference in other people’s life, that’s why she’s so good at her job as a driving coach. Her patience combined with that passion create a safe, yet, fun environment for her students. Gloria has been a driving school coach and part of the vehicle industry for eight years. With her experience, she has become the heart of this driving school; going above and beyond to make things work for everyone.
