Jamie Elrod

The Connector

Jamie is the Global Sales and Key Account Director for IET at Baker Hughes, with 12 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. She started as a Field Sales Rep for Smith Bits and has since built an extensive network of clients who follow her career journey to this day. Jamie is passionate about creating change in the energy sector by advocating for more women in oil and gas and raising awareness of the industry’s positive impact.

In 2019, she co-founded Flipping the Barrel with Massiel Diez to provide a resource for those interested in pursuing or learning more about the industry and to create a more inclusive workforce. 

Massiel Diez

Oil Field Girl

By documenting her nontraditional career on Instagram and YouTube as a fresh chemical engineering grad from McGill University, the then-Wireline Field Engineer quickly rose to virtual stardom, sharing her passion for the industry and encouraging young girls to explore oil and gas careers. 

Her authenticity and openness about the struggles and challenges of working away from home struck a chord with viewers, and her audience skyrocketed into the thousands, with close to half a million views in a short period of time.
