Tell us about yourself.
I was born and raised in Orange County, Texas and have lived in Bridge City for the last 10 years with my husband and our 16-year-old daughter. Our two adult sons still live in the area, and we will welcome our first grandchild in November. I enjoy traveling as much as I enjoy spending time at home with our dogs. Although I am new to Sempra Infrastructure, I am not new to Human Resources, which I have worked in for over 15 years. I cannot recall two days that have ever been the same, and it is nearly impossible to be bored in this field. I have enjoyed and learned a lot from all my experiences during my career.
Tell us about your role as Senior Talent Acquisition and Human Resources Advisor.
Presently, my role consists of supporting managers in various groups to guide them through hiring and the different employee support processes, but primarily, I have been tasked with supporting Port Arthur LNG site employees at all levels. I believe it is important to establish an open-door policy to be able to navigate the dynamics of a construction site, which can be challenging at times. Sometimes, something as simple as lending an understanding ear can alter the course of someone’s day, and that is the part I enjoy the most – interacting with and getting to know the employees and have them leave the conversation knowing that they were heard and have my support.
From your vantage point, what impact is Port Arthur LNG making on the community?
The impact is huge and is just getting started! A project of this size benefits local businesses not only from the personal needs of all project employees, but our company has made a commitment to hire and source locally, as much as possible. When we are closer to operations, local educational institutions can expect an increase in enrollment as we staff operators so the impact will be widespread, and it’s very exciting to be a part of it.
