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 with 300 adopted older brothers, the camaraderie that develops between co-workers working in rural and remote locations and the challenges of finding fitted coveralls. 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.”
