Elizabeth "Libby" Nelson P.E. (class of 2014) graduated from Tulane University with a BSE in Chemical Engineering and a Mathematics minor. During her time at Tulane, she interned with Jacobs Engineering. She accepted a full time Process Engineering Consulting position with the company after graduation. She currently holds the position of Process Engineering Supervisor at Worley (formally Jacobs), while also serving as the Lead Process Engineer on major upstream oil and gas projects in the Gulf of Mexico. These projects include anything from large scale entire facility debottlenecking studies through implementation to small scale hydraulic or equipment sizing calculations. In both roles, she is responsible for the daily activities of the Process Department and ensures effective communication between Process and all other engineering disciplines and project leadership.
Outside of the office life, Libby currently serves on the Young Professionals in Energy Board as the Education Committee Chair, the Tulane Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering Junior Board of Advisors, and the Newcomb Alumnae Association Board of Directors. We caught up with Libby and she was kind enough to share some memories from her time at Tulane.
