Our Board


Erin Robertson

As the current Chair of Roseberry Qld, I see strategic oversight and governance duties as my primary role. I’m passionate about contributing to my community and supporting organisations that provide vital services for those in need in my community. Roseberry Qld aligns with both my own personal and professional values and I aim to be a value-adding Director. My goal is to assist in positively contributing to the growth of the organisation by helping to raise awareness of Roseberry Qld and its programs and seeking connections both with funding and new business opportunities.


Gerard Melrose

I am proud to be part of an organisation that has continued to evolve over a number of years. Roseberry Qld is constantly driving real outcomes for both their clients and staff. My intent as a Director is to continue to support this journey that Roseberry Qld has been on, and ensure the strengthening of our existing programs and the promotion of our brand. Further I see the growth opportunities that Roseberry Qld can achieve in new program areas, as our team have the passion, experienced and dedication to excel throughout the region.

I have enjoyed immensely being a director of the Roseberry Qld board for many years. I believe Roseberry Qld is highly regarded by our community not only with its values but also its ongoing actions to ensure its values are fulfilled to meet community expectations. The support received from the community and government in pursuing its goals has been motivating. I seek to continue my contribution in assisting Roseberry Qld.


Carly Quinn

I consider it a privilege to be selected to represent our members, our people and our clients as a Board Member of Roseberry Qld. I have been so impressed by the caliber and passion of our team members. They are talented and motivated specialists in their field, all dedicated to improving the lives of those in our various communities. Unfortunately the need for our services is continuing to increase, and even during the toughest times such as Covid, the passion of our people has remained steadfast. I look forward to supporting our General Manager to provide them with a safe and sustainable environment so they can continue doing what they do best – serve our Communities.
