My professional background ranges from developing internal procedures to working with financial institutions to liaising with internal and external stakeholders. I’ve had the opportunity to work in higher education as well as the private sector. I enjoy working at SVA and supporting the wonderful staff we have in the building!

I interact with both staff and families in various aspects. My responsibilities include tuition billing for preschool/BASE/Beyond the Bell, student fees billing for K-12 grades, accounts payable, and purchasing, among other operational tasks. I process the Free and Reduced Lunch Program letters and work with K-12 families who request to be placed on a payment plan for registration/course fees.

My kids both attend SVA, which is a big year for our family, as my oldest starts high school and my youngest completes his last year in elementary. My daughter started preschool at SVA in August 2012, and we have been so happy here! A fun fact about me is that I am a native Portuguese speaker.

Year Started at SVA: Started in Business Office in 2019. Started subbing in 2016-17.
