Finance & Admin Manager
Asia is the Finance & Admin Manager at ANV working to ensure smooth back-end processes to keep ANV’s great programming going. Her philosophy is that being organized can be freeing but that it’s also important to evaluate new processes and technologies for true alignment, value-add and staff buy-in before adopting them.
She moved to Oakland to pursue Food Justice work after becoming obsessed with international agriculture trade systems and working in restaurants and coffee shops. She did a stint in New York to attend the NYU Food Studies program, and farmed and researched while there. Asia then returned to Oakland and managed a small nonprofit with three businesses housed within it, where she figured out that managing the back-end of organizations and businesses is where her strengths lie.
She enjoys spending time with the people, the outdoors, food, and laughing! Her hobbies include music, dancing, and herbalism.
