Meet Gabrielle

Before entering Parliament, Gabrielle was a project manager for the Office of the Vice-Chancellor at the University of Melbourne. Before that, she was a lawyer and advisor in both state and federal governments.

Gabrielle was prompted to run for Parliament because she has always had a strong sense of justice and wanted to be part of driving a socially progressive agenda, which makes our state inclusive and fair.

The priorities Gabrielle has for her community are to support jobs and education. She wants to ensure her community has access to first class educational facilities and education pathways that are connected to secure employment opportunities. She believes that strong and accessible employment is key to addressing many of the other challenges that arise in communities.

Gabrielle's vision for Victoria’s future is that it is a safe, vibrant and inclusive state that continues to lead the nation in gender equality, prevention of family violence, First Peoples – State relations, innovation and economic prosperity.

The areas of public policy that she is most passionate about are prevention of family violence, gender equality, Aboriginal affairs, education, and industry and employment.
