In this first of our new staff profile instalments we are introducing Jemma hack.
Twenty-six year old Jemma acquired her certificate IV in Conservation and Land Management back in 2009, before coming to work at GHEMS in 2010 and 2011.
Her roles at the time included undertaking a variety of field operations including chemical weed spraying, seed collecting and monitoring of revegetated areas.
She even acted as supervisor for the handover of the RailLink Joint venture in 2010, which to date has been one of the largest revegetation and maintenance programmes that GHEMS has ever been involved with.
In mid 2011, Jemma took time out to travel around Australia, but has recently returned to Perth and settled back in at GHEMS.
Since her return, Jemma has taken on the role of resident Health & Safety Officer and is also presently re-organising our seed processing and storage systems.
Jemma began her career in the Conservation and land Management industry as a volunteer with DEC in the south west and has been involved with tracking numbats in the Dryandra Woodland as well as trapping Gilbert’s Potteroo in two people’s bay.
These days Jemma is more than happy to work with plants and says that she is keen to do further studies, possibly aiming for her Diploma in Conservation and land Management.
