UVAFinance Welcomes Amanda Meares to the Team

Amanda Meares has joined UVAFinance as a Senior Financial Reporting Analyst with Financial Operations. Prior to joining the team, she was a Senior Financial Analyst on the Budget and Finance Team for the College and Graduate School for Arts and Sciences’ Office of the Dean.

Her experience on Grounds will be helpful as she assists in preparing financial statements and external reports and analyzing financial transactions to ensure they adhere to standards and regulations.

She had two years with the Arts and Sciences Budget and Finance Team and is familiar with university processes. She knows there will be challenges in her new role but she is prepared.

“Adjusting to UVAFinance priorities compared to the budget and finance priorities from the School level perspective will take some adjusting,” Meares shares.

Having a supportive team helps with the transition she says, “I really enjoy how everyone is so friendly and helpful!”

Outside work, Meares enjoys reading, exploring beautiful Charlottesville, and anything Disney-related.
