As a consultant with The Patterson Foundation, Victoria Finley focuses on outreach and stewardship for the beautiful Patriot Plaza at the Sarasota National Cemetery.
For ten years before entering the Sarasota-Manatee philanthropic community, Victoria served as vice president of an environmental microbiology manufacturing company that produced beneficial microbes for seed enhancement and petroleum-degrading microbes for soil remediation and water treatment. Her move from corporate to philanthropy was inspired by love—love for her community and the unique charitable giving that exists in the Suncoast region.
Victoria is a nonprofit business consultant and enjoys engaging with agencies to encourage their potential. Victoria’s interests lie in project management and strategy to polish and advance an agency’s hidden gems.
Victoria is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) and has aligned with several sectors of the area’s nonprofit agencies, particularly in health and human services and education, to assist in polishing and advancing missions. She focuses on brightening awareness and impact to express to the community the blessings of engaging with purpose.
Victoria earned a BS in secondary English education and a minor in business and professional writing from the University of South Florida.
