She is a passionate teacher and qualitative researcher with a special interest in narrative medicine, community and social health care delivery, interprofessional learning, using patient voice in education and innovative teaching methodologies.

This work culminated in being awarded the 2017 Flinders University-ANZAHPE Award for Excellence in Health Professional Education that supports innovative and research informed education. Gabrielle has published and presented her research in Australia and internationally in the area of health professions education and community health policy and practice.
