How did you get started in the energy industry?
I entered the energy industry just over a year ago. I initially began my career as a public accountant. After about one year in that role, I decided to switch fields. I made the jump to this industry after hearing about the culture and team at Satori Energy. Since then, I have been a part of Satori’s pricing team and assist in various marketing capacities.

How long have you been a TEPA member?
Satori has been a member since 2005.

A huge item on my personal bucket list is to attend a World Cup Final. I’ve made it to a semi-final, but not a final match yet!

Tell us something that most people don’t know about you!
I once took a 2-day trip to London (from Chicago) just for fun.

Favorite or most memorable part of your career:
Making the switch from public accounting to the energy industry. It’s been a fun transition and I’ve loved every minute of it!

The professional/personal value of your TEPA membership:
Being a member of TEPA has been valuable, especially as someone who is new to the industry. TEPA events provide an opportunity to expand industry knowledge and learn from professionals that you might not otherwise deal with in typical day-to-day operations.
