Dr Jess Mathers is an OMS Implementation Specialist in the Safety & Operational Risk team at BP. She has over 10 years experience in Project Management, 9 of which were in the Health Industry. Her first 6 years at BP were spent as a Health & Performance Manager where she delivered numerous health programs in Australia and New Zealand, before moving to her current role in 2013. As well as working full time Jess studied for her PhD, achieving her doctorate in Exercise Physiology & Molecular Biology in 2009.
Jess’s passion for health and fitness is evident in all aspects of her life: she met her husband, Michael Clayton, through triathlon and they both finished Ironman Western Australia in 2011, Jess finishing ahead of Michael!
Jess had the honour of meeting angelic little Lily in hospital and being a part of her short but blessed and impactful life. She was able to see first-hand the amazing treatment that the Lockyer’s received, and continue to receive from the Royal Women’s Hospital.
“I was so thankful for the treatment and support that the Women’s were able to provide my good friends, and I am passionate about helping further improve the hospital’s ability to provide treatment through any funds raised by the Lilyroo Fund. Furthermore I think it is important to raise awareness about the issues surrounding premature childbirth as it is often deemed a taboo subject that is not discussed openly; as a result of this lack of awareness, funding is often not channeled towards this area. I believe the Lilyroo Fund can make ground in raising awareness through education and shared experiences, and generate funds through targeted project delivery and marketing; I am excited and privileged to be a part of the Lilyroo committee; in honour and celebration of Lily Mary Lockyer.”
The Lilyroo Fund is extremely privileged to have a person with Jess’s passion and talents on our committee.
