New face at the NJC Canadian Office

Welcome Robyne!

We are pleased to welcome Robyne Balanuik to our Canadian office as the Director of Advancement. Robyne will focus her time and effort on building genuine relationships with our Alumni and community to grow a stronger affinity to our school - it is important to her that everyone understands the transformational power of education, and how their investment in NJC will transform the lives of students.

While she isn’t an alumna of NJC her sister is from the class of 2004.  Robyne has had the pleasure of visiting the campus while her sister was studying abroad.    

With over 15 years of experience in fundraising, 13 of which are within the education and independent school sector, Robyne brings a unique blend of traditional approaches with new and innovative ways to connect with her community.  She is wildly proud of the profession she has chosen - it’s not every day most of us can say that we’ve made a difference in someone else’s life.  But Robyne can. Every day.  
Robyne, her husband and two children reside in Burlington and if they aren’t camping you will certainly catch them on the snowmobile trails all across Ontario.
