Both have been selected as the top 10 finalists of their categories for a national award.

A former teacher, deputy principal and tutor for 20 years, Mrs Eaton is a finalist for the ‘making a difference’ award for her program ROC Teen.

‘After many years in education and raising my own teenage son, I saw that there was a massive need for tweens and teens to know ‘how’ to be successfully responsible for their own resilience, optimism and confidence through the highs and low in life,’ she said.

Through the program Mrs Eaton works with teenagers, parents and schools, teaching teens how to be more in control of their thoughts and mental wellness.

Rose Boreham of Tiny Touch Jewellery is a finalist in the best handmade product of the year category.

The mother-of-two turns fingerprints, hand or footprints, baby ultrasound scans and pet paw prints into silver handmade keepsakes.

Winners are chosen by public vote and will be announced at the AusMumpreneur gala dinner in Melbourne on October 11.
