Tina Jansen van Vuuren


Tina Jansen Van Vuuren is a new Director of The Living Wish Foundation.  She has over 17 years of event planning experience with not-for-profit organizations.  She graduated from McMaster University with a degree in geography and has been fortunate enough to be able to incorporate her love for nature in her 18 year career working in the conservation field.  

Her event planning skills have often combined with her love of nature and her passion for music.  Volunteering as Artistic Director for three different Ontario folk festivals, she incorporated many ‘green’ principles into festival planning.

She currently lives in Wasaga Beach with her husband and her two young boys.  They spend a lot of time hiking the local trails and climbing many of the fine trees in the area.

Her love for people and desire to make the world a better place one kind gesture at a time makes her a great fit for the board.
