Leah Anderson - 2018 Port Stephens Woman of the Year

This week we are celebrating International Women's Day when we recognise the gains that women have made and the areas where we still need to press for progress to achieve gender equality. It was my honour to formally recognise someone I have admired for years who has been pressing for progress in my community.

Leah Anderson is the Port Stephens Local Woman of the Year for 2018, and she has contributed to the community of Port Stephens through empowering local businesswomen and taking on leadership roles as well as generally offering her time and energy to many community efforts.

Leah is currently the President of the Tomaree Business Chamber, past president and co-founder of Port Stephens Women in Business, past president and ongoing active member of the Rotary Club of Salamander Bay, and owns and operates her own local financial services company. Within these roles Leah has worked hard to create more economic opportunities for local women through networking, mentoring and leadership.

Thank you, Leah, for making such a significant contribution to our community, for being such a great role model to others and for pressing for progress over many years in Port Stephens. Congratulations for being Port Stephens Local Woman of the Year for 2018.
