VM Founder & Managing Director
Stina was born and raised a Norwegian and completed her Bachelor of Psychology and Master of Social Work in Australia. She currently works in both the post-separation sector and works with families with children diagnosed with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
She spent her formative years being actively involved in her community; mentoring, sport, music & ministry. It was during these experiences she came to see the gap that was starting to grow and the need for people to not only believe in their real and unique capacity, but to be shown how to uncover who they are and where their foundation lies. With the help of her church community she founded Virtue Ministry.
When Stina isn’t amongst the community doing talks, working, or at her desk studying and drawing up new ministry plans, she enjoys the creative things in life: from fashion to music, from drawing to dancing.
