Flordeliza Lopez is a Certified Public Accountant who graduated from St. Louis University in Baguio City, Philippines. Her work in the corporate office did not satisfy her desire to connect closely with people in a way that is meaningful, significant and fun for her. She began volunteering in various service projects overseas and soon she found her calling.

She was responsible for building and training the finance staff as well consulting and developing best practices. She also provided training on budgeting, reporting and bookkeeping to community-based groups coming from the different ethnic minorities in Burma.
In her work as a volunteer, she came across the Mae Tao Clinic and became fascinated with Dr. Cynthia’s life and advocacies. She joined MTC in May 2010. She is currently the Finance Manager responsible for the overall financial operations, capacity-building for the finance staff, and external audit coordination.
