How do your colleagues describe you?

Silvia brings a unique skill set, perspective and great ideas to the table. She has an incredible ability to turn problems and challenges into solutions and opportunities.

Why do you do what you do?

I like helping others in any capacity I can.


Silvia’s work experience has been centered around helping people. She started by assisting the elderly with their daily lives at Providence Benedictine Nursing Center. Later, she became a substitute for the Salem-Keizer School District. Assisting her sister’s photography business sparked her interest in business, and she earned her AAOT at Chemeketa Community College to aid her in the pursuit of that interest. She decided to apply at Chemeketa’s SBDC because it best aligns with her interests and desire to help others. Silvia firmly believes that helping others with their business ventures helps build a stronger community.
