Sr. Teresita A. Abastillas, DC.: A Portrait of Unwavering Commitment and Vision
Stepping into the new era of leadership, our newly inaugurated university president is a native of Lucena City, Quezon Province—a woman who carries the spirit of her land in her heart. Born under the fiery Sagittarius sign on 8th December 1951, she carries the bold traits of her zodiac – outspoken, optimistic, extrovert, assertive, and analytical.
She doesn’t just lead; she blazes trails, setting precedents with her punctuality and consistency. Her analytical prowess complements her assertive nature, creating a balance that has served her well throughout her professional journey. More than her professional aptitudes, she embodies warmth and caring nature, symbolized by her favorite colors, yellow and pink.
This nurturing disposition is not a recent addition to her persona; it has been a part of her for the past forty-seven years. In what can be described as a divine intervention, she heard and answered God's call to become a Daughter of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac. The decision, she says, is one she has never regretted. Her educational background boasts of prestigious institutions. She completed both her BS Accountancy and Certified Public Accountancy degrees at Sacred Heart College. Subsequently, she earned her Master of Business Administration from the University of Nueva Caceres and her Juris Doctor from the University of San Jose - Recoletos, Cebu City. Her professional journey includes various roles that have contributed to her diverse skill set. She has become an Internal Auditor of the Daughters of Charity Institutions and later served as the Dean of the BS Accountancy program at Sacred Heart College. She then ventured into the realm of Business Education at Concordia College and the Universidad de Sta. Isabel. Her extensive service in various roles has led her to the position of the Vice President for Administrative Services & Finance at the Universidad de Sta. Isabel, a testament to her dedication and competence. Her active participation in the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Philippine Association of Religious Treasurers reflects her commitment to the development of her field and her faith. She has served as a member and then Chairperson of the Core Group of the Philippine Association of Religious Treasurers. Sr. Teresita, a native of Lucena City, is more than just an accomplished academician and leader. She is a trailblazer who, despite her achievements, remains grounded in her faith and dedicated to her mission. With her at the helm, the university looks forward to a promising era of growth, development, and compassionate leadership.
