Dina started out her professional career working as export sales responsible for a company in the engineering industry. In 1997, she decided to commit herself to the international cooperation development field with GVC, one of the most relevant Italian NGOs.
Her first experience with the Organisation took her to Palestine, where she initially worked as Project Manager, coordinating emergency interventions in the Gaza Strip, and later became Regional Representative for the Middle East based in Jerusalem.
