  • The University of Texas at Austin, BS in Petroleum Engineering

During college, I enjoyed the late nights I spent studying with my friends. We always found a way to make it fun, and it made us a family. I held the roles of president and treasurer of the UT SPE student chapter. My first internship was for Anadarko in Gulf of Mexico (GoM) business development. I interned at Linn Energy as a field intern in Brea, CA, and at Noble Energy in GoM completions and subsea engineering in 2015, followed by a 2016 internship at Noble in GoM reservoir engineering. 

I’m now in Noble Energy’s rotational engineering program. I started in 2017 in the Operations Excellence group, then worked as a field engineer in Pecos, Texas. In 2019, I moved into global deepwater completions in Equatorial Guinea.  

Receiving the SPE scholarship impacted my path in many ways. Through the scholarship, I was offered the incredible opportunity to work as a pre-college intern. That internship convinced me that I wanted to be a petroleum engineer. My manager gave me a lot of advice that helped me succeed as a PE student that still helps me today. I got to start college ahead of the game knowing that I was in the right place.  My advice to students is to be active in SPE in college. It’s a great community of people you will know for your whole career, and it provides a connection to the industry that you won’t get from only going to class.
