In 2013 Ginny had the opportunity to travel with Kobe Steele on one of her Orangutan Eco Tours to Borneo. During this travel adventure up the Sekonyer River into Tanjung Puting National Park and then to the Orangutan Care Centre & Quarantine facility near Pangkalan Bun, she was able to observe and interact with these amazing primates in their natural environment – and she fell in love with Borneo and each and every orangutan.

Ginny is passionate about all animals and following her initial excursion to Borneo has been lending a helping hand as a volunteer for OFI Australia’s fundraising events. Following an additional two visits to Borneo with Kobe, Ginny decided that she wanted to increase her contribution to OFI Australia’s cause and subsequently joined the Board in 2021.

Ginny has more than 15 years experience in project management and leadership roles where her experience spans IT, Business Improvement and Business Transformation across various industries.
