Gemma Smith is the Project Manager and member of the management team at the Lancashire Forensic Science Academy (LFSA).
Gemma’s greatest achievement to date is the realisation of the LFSA project from a high level innovative concept, through contract development and design, to a fully staffed physical entity which is delivering, developing and growing the next generation of forensic investigators. All in under three years!
Gemma honed her skills through 15 + years’ experience within the forensic science arena, 10 years at the ‘coal face’ working on live casework before moving into the managerial arena in customer service and operational management.
Gemma prides herself on her values of honesty, integrity, trust and approachability and outside of work Gemma’s focus is her family and in particular she enjoys spending time with her young nephew.
