Karinya House is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Lavinia Tyrrel as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Karinya House. (Effective February 2023 – Interim arrangements outlined below.)

The role of the CEO is to carry on the inspiring legacy of Ms Marie-Louise Corkhill, the founding staff member and Executive Director of Karinya House. Ms Corkhill retired on 25 March 2022 after almost 25 years of extraordinary caring service during which time Ms Corkhill was recognised as the ACT Woman of the Year in 2017. Karinya House will always be thankful to Ms Corkhill for her dedication and service. We also thank Ms Corkhill, who will remain on the Karinya Committee and will always be a valued Friend of Karinya. 

Lavinia Tyrrel will join Karinya House in February 2023, following the impending birth of her second child. Ms Belinda Munn will be interim CEO for the intervening period.
