Kellie will help Healthy Harold educate littlies
KELLIE Sloane knows the importance of healthy eating and is keen to share her wisdom in her new role as the chief executive of Life Education NSW.
Monday was her first day on the job, based in Colyton, and it was a busy one with visits from two busloads of schoolchildren including students from Colyton Public School.
Ms Sloane, a former newsreader, was appointed to replace retiring chief executive of 14 years, Jay Bacik.
“I guess having kids of my own made me understand the value of what we’re doing,” Ms Sloane said.
Using her journalistic background, Ms Sloane said she hoped to be able to spread the organisation’s message even further.
“We’re in the business of communicating so that’s something that comes pretty naturally to me,” she said.
While Ms Sloane admits her first love will always be media, she said she was happy with her decision.
“I’ve had offers to go back into the media but I chose a different path. This path will be the most rewarding,” she said.
Kellie Sloane and Healthy Harold want to help educate young children about good lifestyles.
