Career History: Chief Executive Officer, Lammie’s Daycare Inc.
Annette Lord Cohen, Chief Executive Officer at Lammie’s Daycare Inc., has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of education.
For more than two decades, Ms. Cohen has excelled as both an independent contractor and a child care advocate and life coach, culminating in her current role teaching others how to start or expand a successful home-based childcare business. Through Lammie’s Daycare Inc., which was established in 1997 but is in full operation now, she lends her expertise and passion in the areas of early childhood development, business, marketing, and public administration—as well as raises funds in order to offer free workshops to the community. In the wake of COVID-19, her business approach has changed entirely, but her success has been maintained.
In addition, Ms. Cohen serves on the planning board for the Queens Community Board 14 and is a dedicated member of the American Society of Public Administration, and volunteers for the New York Community Board. Chief among her proudest achievements has been her launch of the first children’s health fair in her community, for which she worked hard to find event sponsors and booked entertainment. A pivotal goal of hers has been to spread awareness about preventable children’s illnesses. In recognition of her hard work, she was honored with a council citation for contributions to the community.
In preparation for her professional journey, Ms. Cohen became the first in her family to receive a college degree when she earned a Bachelor of Arts in marketing, which she followed up with a Master of Arts in public administration from Long Island University in 2000. She also proudly served in the Marine Corps—a post she considers a major factor in her overall success. Looking toward the future, she plans to continue her business and, as a survivor of cervical cancer, strives to educate more women about the illness and her experiences with it. In her free time, Ms. Cohen enjoys traveling, reading, swimming, and going to the beach.
