• Magnolia High School - 2009
  • Texas Tech University, BS in Petroleum Engineering

During my senior year at Texas Tech University, we had the opportunity to travel to Midland, TX to get exposure to real life applications of what we learned in class. After two summers of interning with a company, I was blessed to receive a full-time offer. I completed a rotational engineering role which exposed me to the field operations in productions, completions, and drilling before settling into a reservoir engineering role. During my short three-year career thus far, I have been able to take on meaningful projects that add value to the company. Receiving the SPE scholarship helped me be able to complete my studies in Petroleum Engineering. Due to the exposure of SPE prior to starting college, it made me want to get involved with the SPE student chapter at TTU. I quickly became friends with many of my peers, listened to many professionals talk about their careers, and realized that the oil and gas industry was where I wanted to be. My advice to current students is that perseverance is key in this cyclical industry. Don't be afraid to ask questions, and always remain a student of your industry.
