Gladys Wojcik loves her business, loves her community and sees the fortunes of the two as deeply intertwined.

Wojcik has been a local business owner since 1980. After graduating from McNeese State University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Wojcik opened Kitchens Unlimited. She then married her late husband, owner of Nederland Jewelers, in 1990.
