Victoria grew up in Atlanta, GA and completed her B.S. in Chemical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2015 (GO JACKETS!). Following undergrad, she spent the last 6 years in Houston, TX working for ExxonMobil and supporting downstream refinery operations. She had the unique experience of being part of the teams starting up ExxonMobil’s Baytown Complex after total shutdown following the landfall of Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and the Texas freeze in February 2021. Both experiences gave Victoria appreciation for the complexities and vulnerabilities of the U.S. energy landscape. She decided to pursue a full time MBA at Yale SOM to transition to the Clean Energy space and will be graduating in 2023. This Fall, Victoria is a Teaching Assistance for the Technology Transitions Module within the FDCE program. This module aims to teach professionals in the industry about today's energy models and the technological and economic challenges facing the clean energy transition.
In her free time Victoria is an outdoors enthusiast and enjoys hiking, backpacking, and camping. She also likes cooking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
