Irina Selva (She/Her)
Director of Children's Therapy Services
Irina Selva, Director of Children’s Therapy Services, joins AbilityPath after 13 years of management experience at corporate companies, academic institutions and non-profits.
Her passion for AbilityPath’s mission to empower people with disabilities stems from her early days in Indonesia where she saw her family take a pioneering approach to integrating children with disabilities into the broader community. Irina started her career at Philips Electronics in NY, moving to become a Global Product Manager in the UK. After successfully working several years in the corporate world, she wanted to move closer to her passion and took the opportunity to lead Finance and Administration for an institution for people of all ages with developmental disabilities in Germany. Most recently, as her family moved back to California, she worked as the Associate Director of Finance and Administration at Stanford University’s Baxter Laboratory. She is enthusiastic to be part of AbilityPath, to be close to her passion again, and work with a wonderful team committed to innovate and deliver services that will expand and impact possibilities for people with disabilities.
Irina earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Management with a minor in Japanese from State University of New York. She lives in Palo Alto with her husband and two children, enjoys backpacking, learning new languages and spending quality time with her family.
