Experience Crowley Marine Services May 2010 – May 2011 Arctic Slope Regional Corporation April 2011 - Present
Crowley Marine Services During my year at Crowley my position was an Able Bodied Seamen. For six months I assisted in operating a tug boat across the Bering Sea. The tug boat pulled a barge carrying fuel to the rural villages throughout northwestern Alaska. The fuel that we carried was a means of survival for many of the villages. While I earned a large amount of experience, I was also able to learn a lot about the cultures in these native Alaskan villages.
Arctic Regional Slope Corporation I began my career with ASRC in April of 2011. I am currently located in Kuparuk, Alaska. My schedule varies between night shift and day shifts, and requires two weeks working and two weeks rest. While in Kuparuk, I am learning the daily activities that go into maintaining and operating oil wells. While I enjoy my daily responsibilities as a Well Service Technician, it has made me eager to become an Operator with Conoco Phillips.
Education University of Alaska, Anchorage 2005-2007- Civil Engineering Northern Arizona University 2007-2008- Construction Management Kenai Peninsula College 2011- Current- Process Technology
Education Continued In the first steps of my post high school education, I began at the University of Alaska Anchorage. While doing my general studies, I focused on Civil Engineering. The several classes required for this program has given me insight on several possible career choices. Next, I studied Construction Management at Northern Arizona University. While I was extremely interested in the intricacies that go into commercial construction, I decided to go a different route with my education. The knowledge that I gained during these courses, however, was extremely valuable.
Education Continued Finally, after several attempts, I found my place at the Kenai Peninsula College. I decided to get my Associate’s Degree in Process Technology. The decision was primarily based on the goal to work on the North Slope as an Operator. Thus far, I have maintained a 4.0 GPA in all Process Technology courses. I believe that the years I have spent in several different majors has helped make me a well rounded student. I have a background in several different educational programs, which has given me knowledge beyond Process Technology.
Objective & Background Information Growing up in Homer, Alaska, I began working at a young age. I worked on fishing charters, commercial fishing boats, and residential construction sites around town. I knew at a young age that I wanted to work outside the box in a career that would be mainly hands on. I enjoy working with people and teams, and intend to find a career in which I can utilize my skills I have gained throughout my life. Through extensive research, I have decided that a career as an Operator within Conoco Phillips is the path I would like to pursue.
