CRYSTAL HO: I am currently the Operations Accounting Manager at Liberty Energy. I primarily deal with revenue and variable costs for our frac and wireline crews. What’s fun about my job is that no day is the same! My team handles the transactions day-to-day, and I get to deal with the new systems/clients/processes that arise.

ENERGY WORKFORCE: Why did you join the energy industry? Was there an individual who influenced your decision?

CH: I joined SLB as a field engineer right out of college. I loved the idea of being in the field and being able to contribute first-hand to such an exciting industry.

EW: What individual has been most instrumental in helping with your career? What did their mentorship look like and how did it guide your path?

CH: There hasn’t been one individual, but rather a series of mentors that have always reminded me to channel my energy and passion the right way. They reinforced my experiences and reminded me to think about each situation logically to find the best solutions. At the end of the day, they all told me to be myself and reminded me that hard work pays off in the end!

EW: How has your involvement in Energy Workforce supported your career goals? 

CH: Through the leadership development program, EWTC has challenged the way I view leadership and made me really think about the different skills of not only good managers but great ones. I continue to use the skills and frameworks in my day-to-day activities to help further develop my leadership skills.

EW: What advice would you give someone just getting started in the energy industry?

CH: Have fun and be flexible. The energy industry is always changing and evolving. It’s important to be flexible in our industry and to be open to all the changes that will inevitably come your way.

EW: What do you wish other people knew about oil and gas?

CH: It’s not the bad stuff you read in the news. Oil and gas is part of our everyday life. No matter what item we are talking about, oil and gas has played a part in making the item. There are many hard-working people in the industry, and we are working together to make the world better one step at a time.

EW: What do you do for fun?

CH: Hang out with my sheepadoodle Max!

EW: What’s your idea of a perfect vacation?

CH: Laying on the beach and relaxing! It’s always good to get away and recharge!
