Welcome Prescilla!

From Manila to Edmonton, Prescilla Dela Cruz took the long way around to working at AICT. When Prescilla and her husband, Ricardo, emigrated from the Philippines to Canada in 2005 they settled in Vancouver, but Vancouver's rainy weather and Ricardo's experience in the oil industry soon brought them to Edmonton where Prescilla held several accounting positions before joining AICT.

Although Prescilla's work background has been mostly in accounting—she worked for 20 years in the accounting department of a manufacturing company in Manila—she is enjoying her role as Junior Procurement and Inventory Coordinator on AICT's Finance and Administration Team. Currently, as a junior procurer, she helps with the reconciliation of MasterCard statements and the Acrodex billing report. And, as an inventory coordinator, she helps with counting inventory, writing off surplus items, and moving equipment in the ClassNet link. She also helps with software licensing and takes care of the software stocks at the Help Desk.

Ever since her arrival at AICT, Prescilla has been impressed by how friendly everyone has been. People greet her by name—even when she doesn’t know theirs—and will not hesitate to answer any questions that she may have. After a long journey, it’s nice to come home to a place like AICT, a place where everybody knows your name.
