Team Spotlight: Greta Jasiak

Take a moment to get to know our Communications Specialist Greta as she answers five quick questions.

 

What one professional experience made you think differently about the world?

When I worked with the WA Emergency Rescue Helicopter Service, I gained a huge appreciation for those who put their lives on the line every day as part of their job. This experience really shaped my own values, in that it is so important to me to make a positive and meaningful contribution and difference to the world around me. The EHRS team do this through flying helicopters and winching down cliffs. I might not have those amazing skills, but my ability to communicate and tell stories helps people to connect with one another and the things that matter to them, and gain important new perspectives to shape their view of the world. 


If you could travel back in time to the early days of your career, what lesson would you give your younger self?

I would say that what matters most is finding a healthy balance across your career, relationships, the fun and creative stuff, and learning. Sometimes the scales will tip a certain way but remember to bring the balance back. Don't put too much pressure on yourself, you've got a whole life ahead of you to climb the ladder!


What self-care rituals do you put in place to start and end your day?

I usually start my day early with multiple coffees and a champions brekky of avo on toast, or yoghurt and fruit. I wind down the day with a run or a sesh at the gym followed by study. I also try and fit some time in to practice something creative, whether it be learning the guitar, illustrating, painting or writing. 


Where is your favourite holiday destination?

Italy! The food, people, history, architecture and culture all captivate and inspire me. I can't help but feel joyous wandering around the cobblestoned streets of Florence or soaking up the azure coastline with an aperol spritz in hand!


If you could take 3 items with you to a desert island, what would they be?

  1. My kindle - because a good book can transport me to another time and place.

  2. My coffee machine - because I simply must sustain my unhealthy caffeine addiction. 

  3. My guitar - because with plenty of time on my hands, I figure that I'll finally be able to master the instrument.
