Annie Gibney has been working in aged care at Wesley Mission Queensland for the past 23 years and oversees 13  aged care communities.

A desire to help people from a young age, particularly the elderly, has seen Annie dedicate her life to nursing and caring for others. After starting as a registered nurse at Wesley Mission Queensland’s St John’s nursing home, she soon became the Director of Nursing. In this role that she led the merger of St John’s and St Luke’s nursing homes into the state-of-the-art, 145-bed Parkview aged care home, which opened in 2009. Annie has been Director of Residential Aged Care for the last nine years. 

A highlight for Annie during her time at Wesley Mission Queensland has been introducing the Eden Alternative™ philosophy of care across all 13 aged care homes. This philosophy is built around relationship-centred care that aims to empower residents, staff and families.

Annie is a registered nurse and holds a BA in Health Science along with postgraduate certificates in management, and counter terrorism and intelligence. She has completed the executive leadership program ‘Non-profit Leadership Postgraduate Program – Leading in Turbulent Times’ through Harvard Club Australia, and a career-defining ‘Advanced Leadership Program’ through Women & Leadership Australia.

Annie is a Director of Northside Christian College and a member of the Australian Institute of Management (AIM). 

Annie and her husband Patrick have three adult children, all married, and seven grandchildren. Family get-togethers are lots of fun and very loud!
