Energy Engineer, Envinity, Inc

M.Eng in Mechanical Engineering

 

After graduation from Tulane, I joined the oil and gas (O&G) industry working as a hydraulic fracturing Field Engineer in both Texas and then Engineering Manager in Oklahoma.

Most recently, I've transitioned from O&G to energy management within the built environment. At Envinity, I am a part of the Data Analytics group where I support clients with energy rebate applications, utility bill analysis, M&V plans, and the monetization of Facility Improvement Measures (FIMs). I am also a member of the Commissioning group for which I perform site surveys to develop FIMs for new clients and then lead teams during the resulting retro-commissioning (RCx) projects.

 

Why Maryland?

I chose Maryland because I wanted an affordable education from a credible institution, offering a curriculum that directly relates to my work while also giving me a breadth of knowledge from the energy industry as a whole. With courses offered in the evenings and on-demand, I've been able to comfortably work a day job while expanding my engineering knowledge base through the classes at UMD.
