Gemma Cotton Office Administrator

Gemma started with Simpson Western in March 2006 as a part-time work experience student while completing her studies with Northern Business College. When she completed those studies later that year, Gemma then worked full-time as our office assistant and has progressed through the years to become our Office Administrator. She is an integral part of the team that keeps this firm running smoothly. 

She has worked on a number of projects within the firm to successfully develop and advance the administrative functions of the day to day running of the firm. She is currently implementing and running the Paper-lite Project for the firm.

Gemma lives locally in Long Bay and enjoys spending time with her young daughter, walking, reading (especially non-fiction and biographies) and history. She also enjoys baking yummy sweet treats.


“I love working at Simpson Western, which is why I have been part of the team for over 10 years. We are like a big family here, and that’s what makes it easy to come to work each day.”
