DESIGNATION: Mud Logger
EDUCATION: Bachelor of Science, Major Geology, Minor Geophysics
Growing up in Rural Alberta, my exposure to the energy industry started at a young age. I never, however, thought that my career would begin the way it has.
After graduating high school, I was unsure of the path that I wanted to pursue, but had always had an aptitude for sciences. I knew that whatever I decided to do it would revolve around science. In my first year of university, I took a variety of courses, including introductory geology classes. I found it fascinating the way that we can tell the story of the earth’s history and previous environments based on the rock record.
During my time at university, I completed 3 internships at Talisman Energy as a student geologist. It was this experience that helped me to decide that I wanted my career to be in the oil and gas industry. Following graduation from the University of Calgary in 2014, I was offered a position mud logging Offshore Atlantic Canada.
Due to the lifestyle, and being a female, I had never really considered a career offshore, or even on the rigs in Alberta, but I accepted this position with an open mind. Over the last year I have had some amazing learning opportunities, a chance to develop my technical skills, and have experienced things that I never would have thought I would have seen a year ago. I am looking forward to seeing where my career leads me in the future!
