Meet two of the current serving members:

Sarah Gray is the Founder and CEO of ausEE Inc. She has two daughters, one of which (Bella) lives with eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) and was the catalyst for her forming the non-profit organisation in November 2009. Working in a volunteer capacity for 12 years, until 2022, Sarah was the president until being appointed as part time CEO from 2022. Her goal is to make sure that anyone who lives with an eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorder can turn to ausEE for support and to help raise awareness for eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders in Australia. For every new member that joins ausEE, Sarah's passion and commitment to the organisation strengthens. She strives to improve the quality of life for all people living with eosinophilic diseases.
