Lesley-Ann has a background in kinder teaching and has three children, the youngest of whom has Down syndrome. Watching how much confidence and enthusiasm the e.motion21 program brought to her son Ben, she was inspired to become involved in the Cranbourne site to enable the program to be available to other participants with Down syndrome in South East Victoria. In her role as Site Coordinator for Cranbourne, Lesley-Ann is committed to realising the potential of all people with Down syndrome and believes the e.motion21 program provides them with the opportunity to fully develop their potential and have fun at the same time.
After many years of working in advertising and seeing her two sons through VCE, Annabel decided to become more involved in community affairs. She began volunteering in administration at e.motion21, and then assisted with the 2012 end-of-year concert. Annabel’s admiration for the organisation and its goals led her to take up the role of Co-Site Coordinator at Kew , which provides her with a balance of both dancer/parent interaction and administration work.
