Nina co-owned a five-star Fijian resort (Small Luxury Hotel of the Year 2000”) for 15 years. During this time she drove a Health and Education Foundation supporting 1000 villagers. This resulted in the establishment of the first ever island kindergarten, provision of teacher’s salaries, ‘mainland’ boarding and secondary education for the island children who wanted to go down that path. An island medical centre was established, with the Foundation paying for qualified nursing staff and hospital grade equipment.
Nina is a past Management Committee member of ‘Fostering Executive Women’ (FEW), a QUT Alumni Chapter for female postgraduates and currently enrolled female postgraduate students of the QUT Business School, with the broad goal of advancing women in business and leadership.
