Nadine Hink joins Development Team


Nadine Hink has joined the staff on a term position as Development Assistant. 

She has been working with the company since early February and is primarily providing administrative support for initiatives such as The Power of Voice Endowment Campaign and The Gail Asper Award fundraising event.    

“I am currently most excited to be working on The Power of Voice Endowment Campaign,” explains Nadine. “I am pleased to be part of this project because it means I am contributing to the sustainability of opera for future generations. I am also very excited to learn more about opera and stage productions from the people who cherish it the most.”  

Nadine sees the role of Development Assistant as an opportunity to demonstrate her experience with administration and research and to continue that growth while making a difference in her community. 

“I have a deep need to strengthen my community, and I belong in a space that supports art,” she says. “I see myself working in the non-profit sector going forward. Some of my recent volunteering has piqued my interest in fundraising and public relations. Along with my administrative skills, I am also very sociable. I am excited to learn more about myself and my future while at Manitoba Opera.”   

Nadine grew up in Winnipeg and headed west to Headingley when she got older. She also spent a lot of time at Lake of the Woods, Ontario, where her father built a cabin for the family. “The lake was a very special place for my sister and me to grow up.”  

Roller skating tops Nadine’s list of favourite things to do in her spare time. “I have been skating for three years and cannot get enough. I also love creating art, biking, pinball, volunteering, live music, camping, and spending time with my family and friends.”  

After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Manitoba, Nadine worked as a jewelry artist for many years. She joined her family’s real estate appraisal firm in 2018 where she developed the clerical and analytical skills that have been put to good use in her role with Manitoba Opera.   

“It’s an honor to be a part of Manitoba’s arts and music scene. Manitoba Opera is providing an ideal place for me to marry my passions and skills and I’m grateful for this opportunity.”
