Karyn Hinder

Founder - Working Spirit

My name is Karyn Hinder and I am a military veteran with service in the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Air Force. This year I have served 25 years with 12 of those also in the Australian Army. I commenced my career as a Soldier in the Australian Army. I have had the pleasure of working with exceptional male and female leaders, whilst also experiencing extreme situations.

Our Fantastic

Adrienne Goldfinch

Employment Mentoring

Adrienne is a proud jack-of-all-trades with experience in everything from copywriting and project management, to employment mentoring. A passionate advocate for equal opportunity, she currently manages a company that assists people with disability to live life with more choice and control. From the moment her brother was medically discharged from his service with the army, Adrienne has been committed to learning about how such a transition impacts all involved, but most importantly, the opportunities and growth that can stem from such change. After she completes her Bachelor of Sociology, Adrienne plans to undertake a Master of Social Work and apply her knowledge to supporting veterans and their families.
