Some of my favorite memories in college include cheering on the Sooners football team to a National Title game while playing drums in the marching band, and competing on OU's SPE PetroBowl team. I have much enjoyed my early-career as a petroleum engineer gaining versatile oil and gas well engineering & operations experience during 4 summer internships and 3 years of full-time service in the industry working for ConocoPhillips and now Anadarko Petroleum throughout Texas, Louisiana, North Dakota, Alaska, and Canada with a specialization in hydraulic fracturing and competencies in completion design, well intervention, production operations, and reservoir development. I have served as Philanthropy Chair, then Vice President for the OU SPE Student Chapter; and previously as Networking Coordinator for the SPE-GCS Young Professionals Board. The SPE scholarship was a huge blessing to me and is one of the biggest contributors to the positive choices I made in my education and career. Without the support of SPE, I would not be where I am today. Along with the scholarship, I was offered a Pre-College Internship that proved to be one of the biggest factors in building a solid foundation for my education and career in oil & gas. I am so thankful to SPE for continuing to invest in students and education in this way! My advice to today's SPE-GCS scholarship students would be to get involved with SPE in a leadership role, through networking, or general events. I would say SPE is the bridge between your education and career in oil & gas, so take full advantage of all the many benefits of student membership! Also, be sure to polish your resume annually, apply for internships/scholarships, go to the career fair, and have fun! Contact me at
