My favorite memory with respect to my education would be just working together with my fellow students on projects and forming a bond between our whole class and being able to help each other learn and succeed. So far I've been a Drilling Engineer for Occidental Petroleum and I've been rotating out in the Permian Basin, shadowing out on our rigs and learning about the rig operations and different aspects of drilling. Currently I have moved into the role of a night Drillsite Manager, responsible for managing the operations on the rig and drilling wells safely and economically. Obviously the SPE-GCS scholarship helped with paying for college and continuing my education. It also allowed me to having the opportunity to be part of a pre-college internship with Anadarko that introduced me to the Oil & Gas Industry. My advice to students is don't take any opportunities for granted.
