Born in St Petersburg Russia, Alina moved to Sydney in 1999 to complete her Bachelor of Commerce Degree at the University of Sydney. As a graduate, she worked with PricewaterhouseCoopers in both the Sydney and Moscow offices before founding contemporary fine jewellery brand ALINKA in 2014. Alina is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia (CA), Board member of the Australian Ballet Foundation, Australian Ballet Young Ambassador Board member and a long-standing Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation Gold Dinner committee member.
Alina joined the Foundation Board in 2021 but her family has been at the Foundation of the Club and the A-League since its inception in 2004. Passionate about football’s ability to change the lives of youth, men and women, as well as positively impact our community, Alina is looking to contribute to the Foundation’s cause through her philanthropic work and contributing large portions of her time to the Foundation.
