Whitney Valentine-Wafer joins the 4505 management team as the Director of Finance with 15 years of finance and accounting experience. Her love affair with food didn’t being until adulthood, but when she fell, she fell hard. Indeed, cookbooks are her preferred reading material at all times. Whitney has strong feelings about local, sustainable products and 4505’s mission fits squarely into her own personal ethos. Whitney has held most every role that exists in the world of finance and accounting, from covering payroll to Financial Planning and Analysis. She was the Senior Accounting Manager for the SF Conservatory of Music, where she was responsible for the accounting department and all internal and external audits. Most recently, she was the Director of Finance for the children’s clothing company Peek Kids.
