Grants Coordinator - Evaline Rawlinson

Evaline joined us in late 2021, and immediately immersed herself in QKC activities. She has shown up at nearly every one of our plantings, even those far away from home, and helped us with a recent Sausage Sizzle.

Her infectious energy and willingness to pitch in on any project have made her an integral part of our project team. Eve, as she is also known, speaks Japanese and has travelled and studied there many times. She brings her love of Japan to her students at the Catholic School where she is a teacher of Japanese to students from Prep to Year 6.

Eve also teaches Science and Social Studies, with a particular focus on her other special love, koalas. In 2022, Eve’s school held the inaugural “Wildlife Crusader Week” during which all students engaged in learning about our precious wildlife and were encouraged to dress in a wildlife theme in exchange for a modest donation. The monies collected allowed QKC to purchase a drill auger so that we could escalate our planting projects!

Eve lives in an apartment in Scarborough with the love of her life, Tony. Together they have raised 4 kids, who now have kids of their own. When she isn’t teaching, working for koalas or hanging out with family, Eve likes to cycle, go kayaking, and walk and swim at the beach.

Eve recently completed a grant writing class so that she can help QKC with grant applications and acquittals. She’s truly a powerhouse!
