Show Notes

 

In our fourth episode, we sit down with Esha Oberoi, CEO & Founder of AFEA, Award-winning Entrepreneur, Speaker, Self-Love Advocate, and Humanitarian.

Esha Oberoi is the inspiring and dynamic CEO and Founder of AFEA Care Services, one of Australia’s successful private in-home aged and disability care service. Esha’s formative years were incredibly tough upon arriving in Australia as a young migrant at 7 years of age which created a host of mental health challenges throughout her teenage years. The turning point came for Esha when her father, alerted to the depths of her isolation and loneliness, stepped in to assist her in finding gainful employment. As a result, she began work as a Carer in a local nursing home. Energized by her mission to redefine the experiences of the most vulnerable people in our community, she launched Afea Care Services. She is now celebrating 12 years of family business working alongside her mother, father, and husband.
