28 Mar Celebrating Women in our industry!
Coloradans for Responsible Energy Development’s Women’s History Month spotlight continues this week with Christa Zaharias, the President of Corrosion Integrity Solutions! As the daughter of an engineer in a refinery town, Christa grew up with a close understanding of the energy industry. Through college, she worked in several different areas within the oil and natural gas industry and loved it so much, she decided to make a career out of it.
As an engineer, Christa knows that energy touches every part of our lives, every day. As a Coloradan, she loves being part of the constant innovation taking place across the energy industry; something she sees firsthand across the state, from new technology to modern engineering practices.
Her advice to other women looking to get their start within the industry is, “Don’t assume that others at the table know more than you – they probably don’t. If you’re in a meeting and have something to contribute, speak up!”
