I always knew my career would go down the path of engineering one way or another. My father and grandfather are both self-taught electronic engineers who built their telecommunication company from the ground up, and they’re the ones who inspire me to this day to always go the extra mile and to always show up as a better version of myself. Despite my career going a different direction than theirs, I always carry their professional values with me in everything I do.
Born and raised in Mexico City, I graduated from La Salle University in 2018 with an Electronics Engineering degree and although I had been working with my father for several years installing all kinds of communication equipment for the private sector, I found my passion in the power industry when I was hired as an intern in the Mexican Federal Economic Competition Commission (COFECE) to be part of the team studying the energy market after the implementation of the energy reform in Mexico. Not long after, I was recruited as an Electrical Excitation Field Engineer for FieldCore along with two other outstanding women who are still with me on the field.
My first assignment was in Sinaloa, Mexico where I was incredibly lucky to be under the wing of my mentor Richard Reasoner, to whom I’m forever grateful for his patience and wisdom. In addition to the technical knowledge, he also instilled in me the love and passion for the job that’s been with him for over 30 years, which I hope to be passing on as eloquently as he does.
I’ve been a part of FieldCore for almost 3 years now, and I know my journey has just begun. Having had the opportunity to work all over my country and South Korea, I know every job comes with new challenges. Despite everything, the feeling at the end of every project of a job well done is one I can’t describe, but one I’ll surely keep striving for.
Happy International Women in Engineering Day!
