What do you do?
I manage oil field production, which includes planning the most optimized and safest way to produce oil. I coordinate with multi disciplinary teams to manage these fields.
Why did you choose this field?
I was curious to learn the process of producing oil from thousands of feet below the ground to the surface. Plus, I thought it would be fun to travel for work (which I do quite a bit!) and the money was good :)
What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?
I wish I knew that I could have pursued dancing (which is my hobby) even when I was preparing for competitive exams during high school.
Why do you love working in STEM?
To solve a new problem or to try a new approach to solve an existing problem
Best advice for next generation?
STEM doesn't differentiate between men and women. Anyone who loves challenges and puzzles is a good fit. Women brains are naturally wired to solve problems :)
