Biography
I graduated with a BS in Engineering, Chemical Concentration in 2008 and have worked in various aspects of the Oil and Gas industry, and then moved onto permitting where I pivoted into Development Review for a City. I started out working on a Produced Water Recycling plant in Colorado, moved to Washington and worked at a refinery and then moved into the space between these two! The main projects that I have been working on recently involve permitting, design and engineering crude oil and natural gas transportation by buried pipeline with facilities on both ends. I started working as a Chemical Engineer, then a Process Engineer, to a Project Engineer, to a Project Manager, then shifted to Public Work - Back to Project Engineer. I have gone from working mostly independently to running a team that completes projects, then reviewing development projects for a City. In Development review, each project is different! In my personal life, I am married to a Mechanical Engineer and a mother to 2 boys. My husband and I both work full time. When I was in school, I loved puzzles, word problems, and science. No one in my family was an engineer and I didn't know it was something that would fit my life so well! A high school math teacher recommended I try studying engineering, and I could not be happier!
