With her previous work being mainly in the refining industry, switching to chemicals was an adjustment. That change didn’t concern Georgia. In fact, the idea of jumping into a new experience was too good to pass up. Of all things, what Georgia didn’t expect to give her the most difficulty was switching climates.
“I’m a southern girl, so moving to Pennsylvania was a big adjustment.”
Much like the jump to chemicals, Georgia welcomed this climatic transition. The primary driving force behind her ability to always push forward, and meet every challenge head-on, are her three children.
A Family-Focused Career
Georgia says that her children, ages 24, 23, and 21, have always been her biggest motivation. Ever since she started with Shell, her children have challenged her to ensure her work aligned with her personal values of responsibility and sustainability.
“Since Shell Polymers wants to produce polymers in a responsible and sustainable way, I saw this as a way to support the green movement my family cares so much about.”
Georgia’s family cares about their impact on the environment, so she wanted to make sure her career did the same. After learning about Shell Polymers’ focus on sustainability, she was all in. In fact, Georgia states that working on the Shell Polymers plant has been one of the biggest highlights of her career. The impact the project will have on the polyethylene industry and plastics converters is something Georgia will always see as a crowning achievement.
