Gabrielle Quilliam

Mother, Nurse, & Founder of Hummingbird House Foundation

Gabrielle has extensive experience as a registered nurse and midwife in clinical and logistics settings in Australia and overseas. These experiences combined with her role as a foster carer inspired Gabrielle to co-found the Queensland based children’s charity, Hummingbird House Foundation – with the express purpose of addressing gaps in services for Queensland children. The first project of Hummingbird House Foundation has been the construction and delivery of Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children’s hospice for children affected by a life limiting condition and their families. Gabrielle has been a member of the Palliative Care Queensland State Council and has represented Hummingbird House at the Statewide Child and Youth Clinical Network (Paediatric Palliative Care Working Group)
