Gina Parker joined NYF’s Board of Directors in December 2016. A longtime NYF supporter, Gina has extensive knowledge of Nepal including a sabbatical year which she took in 2002 to work in NYF’s first ever center for malnourished children in Kathmandu. Gina and her husband, Simon Russell, co-founded NYF UK in 2013. Formerly, they worked closely with NYF through their non-profit charity, Children of the Himalayas.
Gina balances the demands of motherhood with being a Senior Partner of a wealth management organization in London. She also spends a lot of time working on NYF’s UK fundraising. Gina is particularly focused on creating a closer collaboration with global charities of the organization. She feels privileged to be able to work with the people of Nepal and to help them improve the health and wellbeing of their children.
