Leeanne Enoch is Queensland's Minister for Environment and the Great Barrier Reef, Minister for Science, and Minister for the Arts.
A proud Quandamooka woman from North Stradbroke Island, Leeanne was elected the Member for Algester in 2015 and in doing so became the first Aboriginal woman elected to the Queensland Parliament.
Leeanne is passionate about community development and social justice issues. As a mother to two sons she understands how important it is to protect our state’s most valuable asset – its natural ecosystems – for this generation and those to come.
Prior to entering politics, Leeanne worked with the Australian Red Cross, guiding humanitarian policy and programs to improve the lives of Australia's most vulnerable. She also spent more than a decade as a high school teacher throughout South-East Queensland and in East London.
