Director and Founder
Deborah is the Director & Founder of Empowered Collective. In mid-2020, she started the business with the goal to deliver high quality mobile and flexible community services to people in our community.
Since then, the business has grown under Deborah’s leadership. She has managed, supervised, coached and mentored many people, including community service program participants.
Deborah had a long career in private and public sectors, including 16 years in the Australian Public Service, before pursuing her love of community services.
Deborah applies her passion for helping people with her experience in evaluating and achieving agreed performance outcomes and outputs. She also applies good governance, project management and value for money to all contract arrangements.
A keen volunteer, Deborah remembers being active with Vinnies as a young child accompanied by her parents. She later took up volunteering as an adult in her local community, across a variety of community programs. Deborah believes that volunteers are the heart of every community.
