Flor Hotchkiss

Flor joined Vicenti as a Director/Consultant to K-12 School Districts in 2015. With nearly 30 years of experience in school district accounting, she is passionate about sharing her knowledge with school districts in times of need and with professionals who desire to expand their career in school district accounting. “I was very fortunate to start my career with an AMAZING Superintendent who believed in me and provided me with endless support. She was my mentor and she became my long-time friend. I believe in the expression ‘pay it forward’ and this is my chance to do just that!”

Prior to joining Vicenti, Flor spent more than twenty-seven years with East Whittier City School District, the final 6 of which as the Chief Financial Officer. She directed and supervised several software conversions including HRS payroll system, PeopleSoft financial system, and California Standardized Accounting System. “From the very beginning, I viewed the budgeting process as a puzzle where a lot of pieces were put together to make a picture…a financial picture that stakeholders can rely on for making responsible financial decisions.”

When she is not working, Flor enjoys spending time with family, hiking, sailing, and reading crime/mystery and historical fiction novels. She also loves to travel.
