But because he has always enjoyed being around people and likes being helpful, he changed his major to sociology at Auburn. He graduated in 2008 and spent nine years in that university town managing property for a town home community.
Glover holds down two jobs. He’s the owner of Lovers by Glover at 105 E. Ladiga St., Suite B., where he gets to be creative. He makes many of the items that are for sale, including furniture, wreaths and some frames.
“I refinish a lot of my furniture,” he said. “I work a lot with wood and metal and get a lot of enjoyment from everything I design.”
Glover especially likes to design houses, and that’s the reasons he initially decided to major in architecture. In fact, he designed his parents’ home.
He’s called on frequently to do the interior design of homes, decorate Christmas trees, and make wreaths.
Glover had a busy weekend. He had a premier party at Lovers by Glover Friday night, which was catered by Heather Jackson of Nett’s Kitchen, and open house on Saturday. He’s pleased with the turnout and the acceptance of his store, which is usually open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Glover’s second job is in the Alzheimer’s unit at Piedmont Healthcare Facility where he is a certified nursing assistant and gets to help seniors or those who can’t help themselves. He said his degree in sociology helped prepare him for this role in his life.
“I’ve always had an interest in people,” said Glover. “I like knowing how to communicate with them and teaching them how to communicate with me. I like knowing the interests and the habits of my customers so that I can help them make selections, and I like knowing that about the residents where I work so that I can help them.”
Glover graduated from Piedmont High School in 2003. He is the son of Don and Patty (McDowell) Glover. His brother and sister-in-law, Kyle and Heather Glover, have triplets, Emma, Brantley and Lily.
He is a member of the First United Methodist Church.
