Gabriela S. Avila, MBA

Director, Finance and Administration


About Me

Finance & Administration leader focused on corporate growth through strategic planning and financial management.

What do you like to do for fun?

Traveling, reading, eating out and attending art performances. I very much enjoy visiting new places and learning from other food and music cultures.

What excites you about this position?

I have always enjoyed working in start-up settings, which is why being part of the founding team of the College of Veterinary Medicine and being able to lead and establish all HR, Finance, and Administrative functions from the ground level is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I'm very thankful that I get to do something that will have a great impact not only on a personal and professional level, but for all Arizona as we have become the state’s first public veterinary-medicine school. It is pretty exciting!
