This webinar is for those who feel stuck in their careers due to limited prospects: students, employed and under/unemployed geoscientists. If you’ve ever thought: 

  • “Do we all have to be data scientists?” 
  • “How do I advance when I’ve been stuck in the same role for 5+years?” 
  • “I don’t want to give up a career I love” 

You are not alone. Our old model of: “Know what I want, do the work, and get the results”, no longer applies the same way. Carrie brings insights from the last year of coaching Calgary professionals in the energy sector as well as her personal journey. As a geoscientist who has both “stayed” and “left”, she identifies deeply with those who struggle to make and maintain either decision.


Carrie is a professional, internationally certified coach and an Empowerment and Career Coach at CY Coaching. Carrie helps Calgarians displaced by the disruption in oil and gas navigate change. In 2020, she joined Higher Landing as a Career Coach helping professionals get back to work or pivot to new industries. In 2021, she joined BetterUp as a leadership coach to international emerging leaders and executives. Her geophysics career started in 2002 with ExxonMobil, and she worked at Husky and Murphy Oil before working as a geophysical consultant from 2016-2019. Carrie is an avid novice skier, hiker, and cyclist for the past 20 years. She loves being outside, but has not really improved in skill in any sport, probably because she is always paying more attention to the conversation. She loves reading, dancing, her cats and is addicted to working part time since her sons were born 15 years ago. She can’t keep a surface clean of clutter to save her life, and still daydreams about what she might be when she grows up.
