“I am learning something new every day. It feels like I went from 0 to 60 in an instant, and I still have so much more to learn. Everyone here at GES wants to see you succeed. All you have to do is ask, and you’ll find someone who is willing to take time to share their personal experience or explain why we approached an issue a certain way.”
Jacqueline Brewster is an Associate Geologist in our Baton Rouge office, although most days you are more likely to find her in the field than at her desk. Jacqueline has emerged as a trusted team resource, leading to a recent promotion and growing role on some of GES’ largest client programs.
Jacqueline joined GES after earning a Bachelor of Science in General Geology from Louisiana State University (LSU). Her academic pursuits and previous internship experience provided Jacqueline with a solid foundation for building a career in environmental consulting. Jacqueline has demonstrated a knack for picking up new technical concepts quickly and she continues to leverage GES’ internal resources and network of technical experts to expand her knowledge base. She recently supported her first Phase I Environmental Site Assessment project, a fast-track effort comprised of multiple sites. With some early coaching and support from senior GES staff, Jacqueline was able to meet the challenging deliverable schedule while submitting high quality work in her assigned region, contributing to the overall success of a national team effort.
Jacqueline’s professional development has extended beyond her on-the-job training at GES. She recently passed the Fundamentals of Geology (FG) exam, earning the professional designation of Geologist-in-Training in the state of Louisiana. She plans to pursue her Professional Geologist license in the future.
