Vetta’s mom knew there was something special about her by the way she painstakingly arranged the seating of her stuffed animals around the table of her toy tea party set. Growing up, Vetta loved to plan and organize holiday family dinners and outings—especially the checking off of all the to-do items on her list. So by the time she graduated from college, she was more than ready to organize and perform within the administrative operations of larger organizations like the District of Columbia Superior Court and the American Bankers Association.
As Office Manager, Vetta’s job is to make sure everything runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. She gracefully moves from administration to finance, HR and IT, all while managing voluminous calendars and creating processes to improve and streamline operations.
