National Executive : Early Childhood Council
Childcare, Childhood Education
Lonnie became involved in the childcare industry when she purchased a centre, Bright Sparks Childcare, in November 2005. From there, her commitment grew, both philosophically and practically, to early childhood education. Lonnie has worked for a variety of corporates—airline, meat processing and newspapers—in accounting, IT and senior management roles. She is a qualified accountant, a member of the Institute of Directors, and has a Masters in Business Administration. Her qualifications and experience mean she can bring strategic thinking and good governance disciplines to the Executive Committee. In addition to her childcare centres, she is involved in other industries, including residential private hospital care of the elderly and private surgical hospital services. Lonnie has two young sons, ¨C Jackson and Henry.
