The International Association of Women (IAW) honors Uli Favata as a 2018-2019 inductee into its VIP In uencer of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in entrepreneurship. The International Association of Women (IAW) is a global in-person and online networking platform with nearly one million members, 1000+ in person and virtual events, over 100 Local US based Chapters and International Chapters in several cities in China.
“I’m pleased to welcome Uli into this exceptional group of professional women,” said IPDN President and IAW Spokesperson Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”
After nearly two decades of working in the hospitality IT industry, Uli Favata made the decision to switch career paths to pursue one of her passions. “Working with children has always been closest to my heart, and my years as a foster parent inspired me to make it a reality,” she said.
For more than three years, Ms. Favata has held the role of Program and Facility Director at SpringStone Montessori School. She uses the many skills she has honed in leadership, language, communication, IT, management and market and product development during her corporate career to run the day-to-day operations of the school. “My key responsibilities include daily scheduling, classroom and teacher observations, curriculum development, special event organization and continued revenue growth, personnel management, recruiting, orientation, professional development, family conferences and prospective families’ tours,” she added.
From the daily hugs she receives from her students to the progress she sees in their learning to interacting with the supportive families, Ms. Favata finds her job extremely rewarding. However, she plans to soon make another career move. “I am looking to make my last career change into the nonprofit sector to make a difference every day a reality for people/animals in need,” she said. “I have also recently signed up with IDShield and LegalShield as an Associate, and I would like to introduce the services to the IAW members I connect with.”
