I began my career in the oil and gas industry where I worked as a field engineer on the rigs and well sites deep in the heart of Texas. This role challenged me physically and mentally to solve problems in high stress environments. It took me on a journey that allowed me to meet people around the world, work north of the Arctic Circle, and move six times in operations and engineering (R&D) roles for the next 10 years.
My next adventure in the technology industry will bring me to Siemens as a Technical Product Manager where I hope to continue helping people solve problems on a really big scale. I delight in building things that save resources and drive sustainable business across global markets. The Global Executive MBA program allowed me to see that scaling technology solutions looks different around the world and understanding people and culture is a key component to adoption and lasting, positive impact.
I have a BS in Environmental Engineering from Lehigh University and a MEng in Petroleum Engineering from Texas A&M University. I found Fuqua through alumni. Their stories and experiences energized me and I knew quickly I wanted to be part of the team-based community. I chose to purse the Global Executive MBA program because I wanted to be challenged to lead global teams, grow through uncomfortable conversations that tested my ideas, and broaden my global business knowledge. Through the program, I found all of that and more. During the program, I participated in the Fuqua Client Consulting Practicum (FCCP) and served as an elected class representative to the Fuqua Judicial Committee. Additionally, I was recognized as a Forté Fellow and Fuqua Scholar.
