Justine joined Dimagi as a Field Manager in May 2019. She
joined with over 6 years experience in communications and over 3 of those years
in the development and NGO sector. Her career began with a small but innovative
digital marketing agency based in Gansbaai. Through clients that had an
investment in social upliftment and/or conservation, she discovered her passion
for impact-driven work. Some of her career highlights were working with a social impact organisation that adopted a collective,
evidence-based approach to alleviate the barriers to education in Philippi;
with a particular focus on health, literacy and domestic abuse. She was exposed
to asset-based community development, farmer managed natural regeneration,
beekeeping and other sustainable initiatives during her time with an urban
greening and reforestation NGO. She also has experience in CMS, facilitation, coaching,
fundraising, conservation, education and she furthered her knowledge with
part-time courses in Sustainable Development. She is now excited to use
technology to empower rural communities with Dimagi.
She was born and raised in Johannesburg but due to her
natural inclination to the ocean, Cape Town has been her base throughout her
adulthood. She holds a degree in English and Media & Writing from UCT.
Before starting her career she spent a year teaching English in Thailand and
backpacking through South America and has continued to travel whenever
possible. Outside of work she enjoys swimming, surfing, yoga, boxing, reading
and spending time with loved ones.
