What does Empowering Women in Industry mean to you?

Empowering Women in Industry is very meaningful to me. Its meaning is two-fold – support your female colleagues and peers while simultaneously blazing a path for those women who will come after you. I’ve always been a bit of a Wonder Woman fan and see her power in every girl and woman. It is so important for women to know their power then to be aware of and explore the incredible opportunities available to them in industrial fields – especially oil and gas. There’s never been a better time for women to be part of oil and gas. Their different communication styles, perspectives, and ideation are invaluable.

How did you get started working in your field?

I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration in Marketing from the University of North Texas in 2003 and began my career at marketing and advertising agencies. Being in Houston, I consulted for many energy companies across the industry from upstream to downstream, suppliers, and service companies during my time in the agency world.

I joined Weir Oil & Gas in 2010 as a Divisional Marketing Communications Coordinator. The dynamic oil and gas industry, combined with Weir’s outstanding culture, provided me opportunities to continually increase my level of responsibility. I currently oversee the company’s marketing and communications responsible for the artificial lift product line, support sales efforts for the wellhead and frac product lines, and most recently took responsibility for the Houston manufacturing plant.
