Chief Financial Officer
With more than 20 years of nonprofit experience to her credit, Jovina Neves has played a crucial role at Stanford Sierra Youth & Families since joining the staff in 1997. In addition to serving as CFO, she also manages and directs several departments including Accounting, Facilities, and Information Technology. She earned her bachelor’s degree from UC Davis.
Jovina has witnessed exciting growth at Stanford Sierra Youth & Families and looks forward to enhancing programs in the future. “It’s been incredibly rewarding to integrate our mission and values into my daily work. Although I’ve seen the agency grow tremendously over the years, we’ve kept our commitment to improving family-centered practices a number-one priority.” She hopes her contributions help “create and support systems that, in turn, support families who so desperately need our care.” When Jovina isn’t working she most enjoys spending time with her husband and two children.
