Glover is the founder and managing member of The Catalyst Group, a national consulting firm. Previously, she served as president and CEO of the Atlanta Housing Authority and its affiliates. Glover currently serves as a member of the Enterprise Community Partners Board of Directors, one of the largest nonprofit affordable housing and community development organizations. She has served on the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity International, as a member of the the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta and as a commissioner of the Bipartisan Policy Center Housing Commission. 

Glover was also one of HousingWire's 2015 Women of Influence. Women of Influence for 2016 are now closed, and winners will be announced in HousingWire's August issue.
