Sochie Zavaleta

Assistant Controller

As Assistant Controller, Xochitl (who also goes by Sochie) helps to maintain and oversee all accounting functions and provides Natural Lands’ staff with accurate and timely financial reporting.

Though her work requires her to be behind a computer (as many of us must!), Sochie loves spending her non-work hours outside with her family. Hiking along the Brandywine Creek is a favorite destination.

“I spent most of my childhood years in a very small village in rural Mexico, and I was lucky to have my grandma and aunt who took me to collect wild flowers in the fields every May for our annual church celebrations.”

Prior to joining Natural Lands, Sochie worked for a real estate investment trust.

She holds a BS in Accounting from Immaculata University, and an MBA from the Pennsylvania State University.
