Victoria Levy

Controller
Victoria Levy comes to us with an eclectic array of experience and talent that will all serve her well in the Controller position here at StoneLaurel. After completing her doctorate studies from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Tuskegee University, she served 8 and a 1/2 years as a Veterinary Corps Officer in the United States Army in charge of the Food Safety and Security Inspection program and operated a veterinary treatment facility on various installations with all four branches of the military. After completing her military scholarship obligation and serving abroad, she returned to Atlanta Georgia and served as a Compliance Trainer and Special Projects Coordinator with the Atlanta Housing Authority in their Real Estate Management Division. She completed additional studies to earn a Master of Business Administration degree as well. She was fortunate enough to find an occupation that allowed her to blend her management and leadership training from the military, her compliance and reporting skills from the public housing arena, with her veterinary education, and served as a Subject Matter Expert and Sales Consultant for Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc., a globally recognized leader in product research and development for small animal nutrition. In addition to her daily sales consulting duties covering six states in the southeast, Victoria also became a corporate trainer for the company which required her having to travel back and forth to the Hill’s Corporate Office in Topeka, Kansas to train New Hires and other company personnel monthly on small animal nutrition, veterinary practice management, and sales protocols. After 12 and a 1/2 years of extensive travelling via company car and plane, she decided she wanted to leave the Sales Industry and have a more stationary job. Not wanting to go back into veterinary medicine to practice nor move to Kansas to assume the Training Manager position there, she completed the certifications for becoming a Professional Bookkeeper and Quickbooks Specialist and entered her 4th career as an Accounting professional; quickly climbing the ranks to become a Controller for Crimson Management, LLC, a property management company with both government-subsidized and conventional apartment communities in surrounding metro-Atlanta cities. Victoria is a very new resident of Charlotte having just moved here in October of 2019. And when she is not busy crunching numbers for StoneLaurel, she enjoys tending to her menagerie of indoor plants, catching up with long-distance family and friends on the phone, watching court tv along with various Law & Order type shows, playing Candy Crush, and spending time with her fiancé going to movies, dinner, and Carolina Panthers games because he is the ultimate Super Fan. Together, they have a blended family with her two sons and his one, who are all in their late 20’s. Because each son lives in a different state, getting everyone together for family gatherings and holidays is a real treat because she likes to cook too.
