Lainie is from the Milton-Ulladulla region on the NSW South Coast. She has been heavily involved with the Milton Show since birth and growing up, she spent a wealth of time on her grandparent’s dairy farm where her interest in agriculture began.
In 2016, Lainie was crowned the Milton Showgirl and it was through this she became aware of and involved with Next Gen. Through her delegate role she hopes to not only bridge the gap between her local shows but to also bring forth their concerns and successes to a forum of likeminded individuals.
Lainie has completed a Bachelor of Psychology, Postgraduate Certificate in Criminology and is currently studying a Masters in Health Service Management. She works for NSW Health, currently within Sydney Local Health District. Her passion is in equity of access to resources for socioeconomically disadvantaged and rural communities, particularly in the fields of health, legal aid and education.
