Kandy grew up on a farm with the oil and gas industry right in her back yard, literally. Her knowledge of oil and gas was a great resource once she began a career in the business.

Kandy’s job is very multi-faceted. One day she could be in the office doing detailed regulation analysis and writing reports. The next day she might be out in the field, digging for soil samples.
