Gayle is a Group Guide in the Poolee group.
She and her husband reside in the far western suburbs of Chicago. Gayle is an Administrative Secretary at a waste water treatment facility. She has been married for 24 years and has 2 children. Her oldest son entered the DEP program in March, 2016 and became a Marine in 2017. Her youngest son started high school this year and like his Marine brother runs cross country and track. Gayle likes to spend time with her family which includes time at the shooting range and learning yoga, both of which help her stay calm and focused as a Marine Mom and a mom in general.
Gayle has been a member of the Marine Parents Poolee page since September 2016 when a co-worker who is also a Marine Mom, linked her to the group. She has found information, support and encouragement from that group, as well as the groups beyond the Poolee and Recruit stages of her son’s Marine career. Gayle strives to provide the same guidance, support and encouragement she received and continues to receive to other parents going through this process.
