District 6 Director


Sylvia Turner is the Customer Service Lead for Univar USA in Norcross, GA. She was born in Curacoa, Netherlands Antilles. At the age of four her family moved to New York where she received all of her schooling, worked in various industries, married and had two children.

In 1989 Sylvia and her family moved to Georgia, settled in Lithonia and became a parishioner at Christ Our Hope in 1991 where she was introduced to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. With young children, she felt the position of the intake worker with SVdP would be the easiest, but she quickly found out it was the hardest. After years of volunteering with the Christ Our Hope Conference, Sylvia was voted Conference President and currently District 6 President.
