Jeannine Lehman

Jeannine Lehman joined Hanna Perkins Center for Child Development as Finance Director in January 2013. Lehman has 20 years of accounting experience – much of it in the not-for-profit environment.

Before joining Hanna Perkins, she managed the finance, budgeting and audit functions of Robert Stark Enterprises, a Cleveland-based real estate development company. Her role there included financial management of Section 8 subsidized housing under strict federal guidelines.

Prior to that, she was director of finance and human resources for Community Legal Aid, which provides legal services and programs to low-income individuals across six Northeast Ohio counties. She also was involved in creating the finance department at Light Of Hearts Villa in Bedford ­ – a not-for-profit assisted living facility.

“I have a passion for non-profit accounting because the work makes a tangible difference,” Lehman said. “I’m excited to be a part Hanna Perkins. This position will allow me to apply my accounting experience to a wonderful organization with a mission that speaks to my heart as a mother – a place where it’s all about the children.”

Lehman lives in Hudson. She grew up in the Chautauqua region of Western New York, and graduated Cum Laude from the State University of New York-Fredonia with a major in accounting.
