Her maternal grandparents were immigrant farmers from Europe, but Ms. Gamble's mother was a nurse from rural North Dakota because the army offered nurses training during World War II. During the war, her mother knew a woman who was the county extension agent in home economics who entered rural areas and helped them with farming, food preservation and sewing. This inspired Ms. Gamble to enter home economics education.

Throughout the years, her civic involvement has been extensive.

She served as a volunteer for the Vista University Year for ACTION in 1973; working on The Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation.

She was also a past chapter president of the Arizona Food Service Association and a member of Phi Upsilon Omicron and Tau Beta Sigma.

As an expert in the field, Ms. Gamble has been involved in varied capacities with the creation of myriad creative works. In 1990, she contributed to the high school/college textbook "Child Development, Roles, Responsibilities, Resources" and assisted the development of standardization curriculum at Jobs for Arizona Graduates. Furthermore, she created a standardized curriculum for the Arizona Food and Nutrition Department, the state-sponsored pyramid of 15 courses for the adult education for food service employees, and the new course offerings for secondary, community college, university and adult-level education.

Some of Ms. Gamble's achievements over the years included teaching courses at secondary, college and university level. Some of the topics covered were advanced foods and nutrition, beginning and advanced sewing, student publications, teen home survival and career exploration. Others include student success skills, university transfer strategies, professional presentation and techniques, family studies and human development program development.

Moreover, she received a Citation of Merit Award for "Exceptional Efforts Towards Children's Nutritional Education" from the Governor of the State of Arizona.

Though these are impressive awards, Ms. Gamble is particularly proud of her balancing of home, family and career, which is a constant challenge. She considers highlights to be her successful 34-year marriage and two wonderful children, and her ongoing and lifelong friendships with many of her past students and coworkers through the years.
