Let us introduce you to our September Member of the Month, Whitney Rabb. Whitney is an oil and gas accountant for Embark, and has been there for a year (happy work anniversary!). Whitney is definitely the “early bird gets the worm” type of person, as she seems to be filling up her second or even third cup of coffee by the time our staff arrives to open at 8:00 a.m. See that tenacious side of her come out—read on to find out her zombie apocalypse plan. 

What do you do? Tell us a little bit about your company. 

I’m an Oil and Gas Accountant. I work for Embark (accounting/financial consulting and outsourced accounting)—we solve problems for CFOs and their teams! 

What’s something that has surprised you about your chosen career path? 

I learn something new every single day. Yes, I’m an accountant—most people probably find that boring—but being in the Oil and Gas industry is super fun. Drilling, completing and watching a well become a major producer is very exciting. O&G is an extremely volatile industry, but it keeps life interesting.

How did you end up in your current role?

I started my career in Banking, but quickly realized that was not for me. A friend of a friend was hiring an Accounts Payable accountant at a small E&P company, so I interviewed. Best decision ever!  I’ve worked in many areas—Accounts Payable, Joint Interest Billing, Revenue and I’ve done a little Financial Reporting. 

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up? 

A professional soccer player like Mia Hamm.

What do you do to get rid of stress? 

Run or drink a few ice-cold beers.

If you could only eat one item for every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

A chocolate lava cake (good thing I like to run…)

Would you survive a zombie apocalypse? How? 

Of course. We live in the country, so we’d hide out in the underground bunker!

What is one of your favorite things about being a member of the root coworking? 

The energy/atmosphere. It’s fun to see the many different companies come together and share a space.
