Kelly-Jane Dances to the beat of her own heart

Moving back to Australia after living, working and studying abroad, Kelly-Jane Wallis joined the business in 2012.


Based in our Brisbane office, she is a hydrogeologist in our Resources team. She works on projects in civil infrastructure, mining, coal seam gas and water supply fields and is currently leading the groundwater assessments for the OSAR project in Melbourne. 

Beyond her technical responsibilities, Kelly-Jane contributes to the health and wellbeing of all staff as a member of the National SHEQ Committee and is coordinating this years Safety Week Working Group. 

Throughout her career, Kelly-Jane credits her success to remaining flexible, personal, passionate and down to earth. Kelly-Jane says, “Since being at WSP I’ve had the privilege to work on some amazing projects, the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing has been a highlight to date where I got the chance to work onsite with some inspiring and dedicated people. The project was challenging in several ways but empowering, rewarding and encouraging all the same. I think this speaks volumes of the WSP culture.”

Kelly-Jane’s desire to challenge herself and chase her dreams has always been prominent in her life and career. Travelling through Europe in her early 20’s, she met her now husband and lived in Spain for 11 years. Based in the Mediterranean island of Majorca, Kelly-Jane worked at the Geological Survey of Spain and completed her PhD in Geological Sciences at UPC Barcelona Tech University.

“Continual learning is a good thing, completing my PhD is obviously a very proud achievement of mine. I love Spain for the people, culture, food and language. I really enjoyed my time honing my Flamenco dancing skills” she concludes.
