Stefania Valente, Finance Administrator
Stefania’s journey out of motherland Italy took off in the year 2000, moving on from a career in marketing that she happily left behind, swapping Milan from London in search for new directions in life and work.
Since then she turned around a few career paths, first pursuing well-being, studying nutrition and cooking for children and then going back once more to education gaining an AAT accounting diploma.
Thanks to her sharp eye to details and principled work ethic, since 2007 she has been working in the voluntary and cultural sector always choosing socially responsible employers, giving her time to Hackney City Farm, Iniva, Sense of Place, Autograph-ABP, Adrenalinedance and A2 Company, combining her financial management skills with a passion for art and culture.
At Chats Palace, her work is aimed at keeping the financial side of things healthy so that the core creative team can deliver their mission for a vibrant and diverse arts and culture in the community programme of events.
