Julia McElgunn | Petroleum Geologist and Energy Advocate
I am a professional geologist who is passionate about our energy sector and is driven to find a creative win-win solution. My education and thirst for knowledge has shaped the critical thinker within me to question both sides of every story and always seek to understand.
A personal journey of learnings [failures] has resulted in my understanding that it's when we let go of control and perfection and show vulnerability, we open up to the opportunity to create a life of beauty, joy and amazement for everyone involved.
Julia's unique differentiators are:
- I’ve worked in the energy sector since graduating high school, working in the field, pipelining, at a gas plant, on wellsite, and in the office mapping up drill locations. I understand Canadian Oil and Gas
- I'm resilient and won't give up
- I love science, knowledge, data, critical thinking and questioning
- Finding a win-win creative solution is my sense of accomplishment and satisfaction
- I'm competitive yet sensitive to the subtle emotions
- Efficiency runs in my blood: born bred and raised that way
- Certifications: P.Geol certification (with APEGA), M.Sc., (Masters of Science)
- Memberships: CSPG (Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists), AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists)
