Gemma Robertson-Spary

Hi! I’m a positive trustworthy person who welcomes change and adapting in situations with a positive attitude. (Even on those chilly 3am call times. Cold? What cold?) I enjoy meeting people and Iearn by watching and listening. I accept each job as a blessing and try my best in what ever I’m tasked with. I have done a number of mundane jobs in the past before deciding this is the career id like to evolve in. (Anyone know the challenges faced to test photocopiers….? Or dealing with the public on a number of levels including a complaints department at a parcel firm…the fun 🙂 ) I’m now a mum of 2 and I love them to bits which has put me back a couple of years from working but It has made me want it soo much more! I want my girls to see me working in a career I love and for them to strive for themselves in what ever they want. Lucky to have a fabulous hubby who also wants to see his girls grow so we make a great team for work and home life balance. Throughout the pandemic where work was low/non existent I worked in a number of small pharmacies to help in their healthcare/dispensary teams.
