The Empowerment Challenge
BOARD MEMBER & TREASURER
Antoinette grew up in Melbourne and over the years worked full time within the sales industry in various roles. Once having children Antoinette reduced to part time work so she could focus on being a mum and spending more time with her beautiful kids.
Looking for a career change at 35 Antoinette returned to schooling to complete her Certificate IV in Bookkeeping and not long after moved to Ocean Grove with her husband Pete, to enjoy and raise their children in a more relaxed coastal lifestyle.
Antoinette has always enjoyed giving her time to helping others. This began by volunteering in her children’s Kindergarten and Primary School as a classroom helper and then more formal roles on the Parent & Friends Association Committee and Kindergarten Committee as a Treasurer.
Now her children are adults, Antoinette has focused on developing her own successful Bookkeeping business, but her enjoyment of supporting others soon led her to volunteer with The Empowerment Challenge, as the values and message of the Empowerment Challenge align with her own personal values.
In her spare time Antoinette loves spending time with and entertaining family and friends. She also enjoys getting away a few times a year traveling and visiting regional Victoria and Australia.
