Lilian S.

Project Manager and Financial Manager

Master's DegreeCEATS/FIA/USP - University of São Paulo



My professional experience is grounded on almost twenty years of work in different areas - corporate finance, social development and, in the most recent period, in environmental conservation. This varied background was acquired during different stages in Brazil, USA and Botswana. In 2013, I joined Aliança da Terra (AT) as the Project Manager and, in 2016, I was trusted to be the Interim Financial Manager as well. The experience of working at AT has given me in-depth knowledge of environmental conservation directly linked to individual rural producers of all sizes and activities, from Brazil, Paraguay, Colombia and Mexico, as well as the complex dynamics of supply chains. Prior to joining Aliança da Terra, I spent 10 years in Botswana, where I had the chance of a lifetime to startup a grass-roots NGO ( which has been providing educational and social support to vulnerable children and youth since 2003. During that time, I also worked to facilitate the strengthening of the local civil organization sector, through providing services in grantseeking and improving the management structures of several social and conservation NGOs as well as local private businesses. The fundamentals of my professional background was undoubtedly built during the nearly 8 years working in the corporate sector in São Paulo, and for that, I will always be very thankful to my mentors and workmates who contributed to giving shape to the professional I became.
