Jess’ workmates keep her going

15 years of service

Jessica Gillespie first joined GMA as a Laboratory Assistant in 2005. She has since worked her way up to Quality Control Officer and is celebrating 15 years of service this year.

Known as Jess to her colleagues at the Geraldton office in Western Australia, she lists stability, finding solutions to new challenges, and her workmates as her favourite things about working at GMA. Her colleagues keep her energised and motivated at work, and they feel the same way about her too.

“Working with Jess for the past 15 years has been great!” says Donna Collis. “I feel so lucky to work with her. She is an invaluable member of our team and her efforts and enthusiasm is contagious. I look forward to many more years of us working together.”

Wayne Dawson agrees. “Jess is a real team player. She is always helping others, whether it is with technical knowledge, analytical data, or passing on her knowledge of laboratory work practices. Jess is also a very diligent staff member who shows great care and consideration in all she does.”

Outside of work, Jess likes to travel, hike, kayak, camp, study, and practice yoga.
