I graduated from Rice University in 2000 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. I spent the first 7 years of my career working on propulsion system design and testing in the military defense industry. This included jobs at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company and Bell Helicopter. Although it was very exciting work I wanted to shift my career focus to engineering management in the energy industry. I began working with Chevron as a project engineer in 2007, became a project manager in 2011 and then a project manager in 2013 overseeing the development of a wind farm project in Kazakhstan. In 2015, I returned to the United States and I am currently working as a production team lead at an oil field in Texas. My engineering degree has taken me all over the world and prepared me for all types of new challenges!
