Meet Our People

Gail Hilton

Why the Sanfilippo cause?

It is easy to take for granted the basic, most important things in life - having a roof over our heads, food to eat, our own health and that of our children. Rare disease is so challenging to get attention and make a significant impact in, but I completely believe that with urgency and investment we can rid the world of Sanfilippo. 

How are you inspired by the work of the Foundation?

Meg is an impressive leader, not only because of her personal story but because of her vision and business acumen. The children and families impacted by Sanfilippo are daily inspiration - there is real potential of finding a cure and being a part of that would be incredible. More than this though is being a part of an organisation which is prepared to push the boundaries in the non profit space - how refreshing! 

Which value do you bring to our team and how?

My strengths profile put 'connector' at the top of my realised strengths so I will have to say collaboration. I love working across the organisation learning about all aspects of what we do. I also really enjoy connecting with sector colleagues and building relationships nationally and internationally.
