NEW! Hear from a woman making waves in offshore energy operations.
On the Women Offshore Podcast, meet Jais Curry, a graduate of Massachusetts Maritime Academy, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in marine engineering and a minor in energy management. Jais was inspired to apply to the Academy and pursue a career at sea after spending her summers in high school cleaning yachts and working at a boatyard. Five years post graduation, she is an operations engineer at a major energy company with work experience on bulk carriers, underwater cable laying ships, and oil rigs.
Jais is licensed as a USCG 2nd assistant engineer and just received her offshore installation manager (OIM) credential after recently passing the exam. Jais spent the last 4 years working offshore in a rotational position, where she gained experience in various roles on the rig floor, including assistant driller. Jais is also is the first female in her fleet to move a jackup rig in the Gulf of Mexico.
Jais came on the podcast today to share her experience working on the water as one of the only women on an offshore drilling rig, working on the rig floor.
