SVUDL is thrilled to welcome Mary Manasan, our newest team member, who started this week in the new role of Administrative and Operations Manager.
Mary, a self-described natural planner, comes to SVUDL with 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry. Those 15 years included 13 years in management, where she relished the challenge of overseeing staff, guest interaction, and sales in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment. Her move to the nonprofit sector was motivated by a desire to give back, and her administrative and operations experience are strong additions to the SVUDL team.
Mary was born in the Philippines and grew up in the Bay Area. An introvert, she highly values having enough confidence in your own voice to speak up. She is inspired by the way SVUDL leverages youth voice, helping young people do more than sit on the sidelines and watch. Mary is also currently studying Business Administration at Mission College. When she’s not studying or changing young lives by working behind the scenes at SVUDL, Mary enjoys cooking and going on day trips with her fiancé and their dog Milo.
We're happy to have someone with Mary's skills and experience on board. Please join us in welcoming her!
