Esha OberoiPosition: Founder & Chief Executive Officer
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 2007 in a local nursing home when she was 23.
Energised by her mission to redefine the experiences of the Australian ageing community, in 2008, at the tender age of 24, she launched Afea Care Services, a loving in-home care provider servicing vulnerable communities.
Esha is now celebrating 13 years at the helm of her client-centric business which is impacting the disability and aged care industry within Australia.
Esha’s uncommon approach and her many impressive accomplishments have resulted in her being recognised as Winner of Women’s Agenda Leadership Award in the Health Sector 2021, Indian Australian Community Business Award for Small Business and a Finalist in the Telstra Young Business Women of the Year Awards.

Joseph AssadPosition: People and Culture Manager

Sally SylvesterPosition: Sales Operations Manager
Sally joined the Afea Tribe in March 2021 after nearly 20 years in the travel industry. It’s important for her to connect and contribute to those in need, at all levels. That’s what drew her into the healthcare industry. At Afea, Sally can combine her skillset of strategy, leadership and sales with the delivery of care for others.
Sally is most passionate about growth, leadership and the development of people. She leads with compassion and a sense of humour, inspiring people to show up and be the best version of themselves each day.
In her spare time, Sally volunteers and loves to keep fit and healthy. When she’s out and about you’ll most likely find her on long walks and hikes, or getting involved in her kids’ sports and sports clubs. When she wants some quiet time, Sally will be spending time in her garden.
