Dr Sherree Halliwell portrait

Dr Sherree Halliwell (DPHD) recently retired as Managing Director of an international food service business. She now leads an extensive programme of community-based research at the University of Southern Queensland.

Sherree has held executive positions in many of the world’s largest fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) and retail organisations. She has specialised across marketing, sales, corporate strategy and general management. Recently retired to a more sedate life in academia, Sherree is now based at the University of Southern Queensland and leads a large-scale longitudinal social outcomes research programme in partnership with the Toowoomba Regional Council and regional Primary Health Network (PHN) exploring young people’s engagement in local community programming. 

She has a special interest in aged care in the community, which has led her to complete a PhD in the sociology of family care exchanges. She is passionately committed to raising awareness about the benefits of individually tailored aged and disability care. Sherree’s goal in joining the Wesley Mission Queensland Board is to use her skills to ensure that people reliant on community care have the best options available for a fulfilling and happy life.
