Meet the Founder

Hi I'm Leona, owner and founder of Butler Diaries Pty Ltd. 

I started my career as a research assistant at CSIRO in Plant Genetics of all things! My work on CSIRO research posters and reporting had me hanging out with the graphic designers and teaching myself the software. 

After having my two sons, I decided to change my career and go to night school and get a diploma in graphic design. 

During the day I was a Family Day Carer taking on two other toddlers with my two - one of the most challenging and rewarding career moments of my life! It was hard to work with 4 under 4 and study as well but I loved it and passed with flying colours. By the time my sons were off to school, I was ready to launch my business as a freelancer. I haven't looked back and thoroughly enjoy my business. 

My time as a Family Day Care worker has given me insights into the Early Childhood sector that I could only get from working within it. 

I have many years of experience in branding, marketing and graphic design for educational institutions, training organisations and conferences. I understand the education sector and have worked with early childhood providers and trainers, schools, TAFEs, universities, training organisations, conference organisers and accreditation organisations. 

One of my marketing clients was a childcare provider and asked me to design a diary for them and the rest is history. 

I have diversified into tailored diaries for all professions including tradies (as I also have a love of renovating!) 

The sky is the limit in what we can provide with customised professional diaries, planners and resources for all.
