The best place to work! EAG provides consulting and outsourcing for oil and gas companies. I enjoy working at EAG and being a part of the team! Our company is very diverse and we have a great culture. Everyone is fun, energetic, and we all work very well together as a team! There are also a lot of opportunities for growth.
Every time we complete implementations for clients, I feel like celebrating! I love problem solving and figuring things out. I enjoy helping others and working as a team. I am most proud of developing my team and providing guidance, support, and opportunities.
Be prepared to stay busy! EAG is a very fast-paced environment. Those who are organized, can prioritize their time, and multitask would be a great fit for EAG. EAG also utilizes technology and embraces process improvements – being tech savvy is almost a requirement!
During the Thanksgiving break, my family wanted apple pie. We actually decided to bake one instead of buy one. We had fun baking as family and it tasted yummy!
On my free time I like to spend time with my hubby, kids and puppies. My youngest plays basketball and I never miss a game! My parents and sister live in NYC and we love visiting them over spring break and in the summer.
I love music. Growing up, my dad taught me how to play the piano. I would play the piano, my dad would play the guitar, and my sister would sing during the holidays.
Time management is the key to success. I am well organized and prioritize my tasks. I try to get ahead and work on what I can as soon as I can. I also try and stay focused and refrain from panicking! Work life balance is important, and leadership at EAG supports a work life balance. The compressed work schedule and opportunity to work remote gives me more time to spend with family.
My dad has taught me all that I know. He is the voice in my head telling me what’s right. I am inspired by his commitment to family and his ambition to grow with his career.
It’s okay to make mistakes, just learn from them. No one is perfect, and mistakes are an opportunity to learn and develop!
I’m an Enertia Super User or Enertia Subject Matter Expert (SME)! I started my career as a Revenue Accountant using Enertia. I then moved to the projects and process improvements team since I quickly became an SME of the software. I than got snatched by IT and became a system administrator and provided support. Now I am back in Revenue using Enertia!
