Hello everyone!
 
 

Farewell Carolyn Anne Hoepner
 

 

Carolyn, better known to everyone as Caz, has been at Eastern Hub Community Centre for the past 14 months. She celebrates 10 years with Karingal this year and as performed numerous roles within the organisation.

Caz started out with Karingal as manager of the Kommercial Café at Alcoa with about 10 staff and 12 to 14 supported employees in the kitchen. She remembers one time when a chef asked a supported employee to peel the carrots. When she came later to check, she found that 10 kilo of carrots had literally been peeled!

After Kommercial Caz worked for a few months in Accommodation Support, looking after clients in different Karingal houses. From there she moved to Matchworks as an employment consultant, working in Geelong, East Geelong, Torquay and Corio offices for a total of six years. For Caz her biggest highlight was working with a young man from a disadvantaged background who just could not hold down a job. She spent time with him, exploring his interest in cars and getting him onto a panel beating course at The Gordon. That young man is now in his second year apprenticeship with a driver’s licence and his own place. These are the achievements that make the work memorable.

Caz loves the ambience of Eastern Hub where she has been working in admin, assisting hirers, setting up rooms and many other tasks required in the busy centre.

Outside of work Caz is a talented and productive artist, creating many artworks including paintings, decorative objects and folkart. She shares her home with her beloved Gizmo, a very cute 10 year old Jack Russell/Chihuahua cross, and a pair of large moggies named Henry and Bumbles.

Now Caz is moving on, with a major career change. She is about to start work as a prison officer at Margoneet, having gone through a rigorous recruitment process. We say our goodbyes to Caz as she starts this new phase of her life and wish her every success in her new and exciting role.
