Elke Smirl - Chief Executive Officer

Carolyn Dawe - Administration Manager

Hi, I’m Carolyn,  I started working here voluntarily and now work full time as the Administration Manager but also help with IT, Finance and website updates.  My family have links to the Kulin nations and many of my ancestors went to Coranderrk when it was established in 1863.

I’ve worked in various jobs over the years but mainly as a department manager in a supermarket,  I left work in 2003 to raise my two children at home until they were school age and now I am thoroughly enjoying being back in the work force and meeting, working and yarning up with everyone in the community.
