Louise Hochwimmer

Lou came on board as the Admin Support Officer in 2012 when EWS Headquarters were moved from Victoria Barracks in Brisbane to Gaza Ridge Barracks at Bandiana.

Lou comes to Everyman’s after 10 years working at Department of Veterans’ Affairs, which included regular visits onto the bases at Bandiana, Latchford and Puckapunyal. Her interest in working with the veteran community and servicemen and women is linked to her father’s service in the 2/3rd Commando Unit in New Guinea during WW2.

More recently, Lou worked with the Carer Respite Program for 3 years helping carers in need of emergency and short term respite.

She is married to Bernie and they have two adult sons, which helps her establish an easy rapport with the young servicemen and women on the base at Bandiana.

Lou has been actively involved in a number of ministry areas at her local church since coming to faith in 2007.

Our admin staff would love to hear from you and be blessed by your prayers & support. Please feel free to contact Lou direct on phone number & email below. (M,T,W)
