It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors of the Luke Priddis Foundation announce the resignation of General Manager Tamara Van Antwerpen.
Tamara joined the Foundation in 2013 and has been instrumental in realising the vision that Luke and Holly Priddis had for helping families in Western Sydney whose children are on by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In that time, the Luke Priddis Foundation has moved from cramped co-sharing office space to a fully fledged Centre for Autism on High Street, Penrith. The centre offers support and services for those living with ASD through groups, therapy sessions with qualified therapists and professional navigation of the ASD journey.
“The past five years have been absolutely incredible, and I have been honoured to bring the LPF Centre for Autism to fruition for our families and the community,” Tamara said.
“The time has come for me to pursue new opportunities after creating a world of opportunity for families living with ASD. I have invested professionally, physically and emotionally in to the Foundation and importantly will take this time to take a step back.
“I wish the Board and Staff continued success as they grow the foundation’s future with fresh eyes and new passion.”
Tamara will stay on until the end of August as the Luke Priddis Foundation embarks on the recruitment of a new General Manager.
