Summer internships, college courses and professors, and the bonds she built with her classmates convinced Sue Park of her place in the global energy industry. Upon earning her bachelor of science degree studying petroleum engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, Sue moved back to her hometown of Houston, Texas to start her professional career with Chevron.
Since 2007, she has worked with Chevron in various petroleum engineering technical roles and locations. Park continues to work with Chevron as a Lean Sigma advisor for the Chevron Gulf of Mexico Business Unit. In addition to her technical responsibilities, she is a passionate member of the corporate recruiting team. From student organization visits to interviewing engineering students and mentoring summer interns, Park has helped her company and UT PGE students forge successful relationships and careers.
Along with her professional career at Chevron, Park has actively participated with the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ (SPE) Gulf Coast, Evangeline and Delta Sections as she has relocated her home along the gulf coast region. She was the 2008-09 young professionals committee chair for the SPE Gulf Coast Section and currently serves as the scholarship program chair for the SPE Delta Section. Most recently, Park was selected as the 2017 Deepwater Technical Symposium chairperson. In 2008, she was named as a “Face of the Future” by Fortune 500 Magazine – an honor given to 48 young professionals across the US.
Sue is recently married and lives in Covington, Louisiana with her husband, Christopher.
