Victoria DeFinis

Academic Instructional Manager
Lindblom Math & Science Academy

Victoria is originally from NJ and graduated from Loyola University Maryland in 2011 with a degree in biology. Originally a pre-med student, she found her passion for education as a Teach for America Corps Member. Victoria taught secondary science in Forth Worth, TX during her time with TFA and then went on to teach for three years in Newark, NJ. She came to Chicago in 2016 to work as a College Counselor and joined Schuler in 2019 to help launch the Academic Instructional Manager role at Lindblom Math & Science Academy.

Outside of work, Victoria is a sports fan (go Cubs & Cowboys!) who is always looking to try new restaurants in Chicago and loves spending time with her boxer/pug mix named Gary.

Every student, regardless of race, gender, or zip code, deserves the opportunity to access an exceptional education.
