Jan Schroller, a graduate of Texas A&M University, began her career working with her husband developing software and training tools used in the oil and gas, legal and business industries. After working in that profession for over 18 years, Jan decided to make a career change. After volunteering with several schools working with their science departments, she decided to become a middle school science teacher. She taught for six years until her husband’s health began to deteriorate.
During her teaching career, she met the General Manager of EOG Resources-Corpus Christi and he volunteered to come and give geology presentations to her science classes. When he found out she had left teaching, he asked her if she would like to come work in the oil and gas industry for EOG Resources.
Jan has now been with EOG Resources for over 18 years. She has worked in the reservoir group on several plays within the company, including the Eagle Ford Shale. She has advanced through several positions in the reservoir department and is now the Division Support Specialist working for the Vice-President of the San Antonio division.
Jan has done volunteer work with the Salvation Army, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, participated in mentoring middle school students and has also been a volunteer for many church functions.
Jan decided to serve as a Trailblazer because she feels we all need to give back to our communities and pay it forward. Her inspiration to be a community leader was dealing with her husband’s terminal illness. The support she received was priceless and she realized you can’t do it alone. It takes a community to help each other and she wants show her appreciation for all the support she was given.
