Balancing your home and social life when your role involves travelling across western Canada – and even down into the United States – can be a challenge. Samantha loves that her job with a hydraulic fracturing and coiled tubing company gets her out of the office, makes each day different, and gives her the opportunity to see a lot of unique places. Hear what it’s like to work in the field as a woman – the camaraderie with co-workers, the challenges of finding fitted coveralls and what it’s like to have 300 adopted older brothers. Samantha is an advocate for life-long learning, believes in working from the ground up and wants young women to consider a career in the field.

“You would be surprised what things can work out and what you can be interested in. I would say as far as any anxiety or misgivings - don't be afraid of the field. The experience you can get in the field once you're out of college and working is second to none.”
