Joanne Kinnaird – Fundraiser
Joanne has a passion for the oceans and rivers of Aotearoa. She spent her teenage years living on a yacht with her parents sailing around the country and now lives on the banks of the Hutt river in Upper Hutt. She has seen first-hand the need for people to have a healthy respect for the water and she hopes that in her role as fundraiser, she will be able to contribute to the success of Water Safety New Zealand in keeping people safe. Joanne has worked for a number of charities including The Salvation Army and Sailability Wellington where she was able to sneak in a sail in occasionally much to her delight. Joanne joined the team in November 2018.
