Ellaina has worked for the past 12 years in the not-for-profit sector, helping grow and shape people's understanding of poverty and inequality, community development, and justice. Most recently Ellaina used her skills and passions to help raise funds for one of Australia's largest Christian international development agencies and grow the church's engagement with a Christian response to loving the poor overseas. Ellaina's passion for gender equality, living sustainably, and helping organisations thrive is driven by her love for Christ Jesus and His compassion for all of creation. Ellaina recently moved to Gomeroi land (Tamworth) with her husband and daughter.
