A veteran of the oil industry, Jacqueline Vigil has garnered nearly four decades of professional experience. She started working with oil in Denver, Colorado in the ‘80s, and hasn’t looked back since. Ms. Vigil has since transitioned to General Monitors, and oil and gas company where she currently serves as an administrative assistant. To ensure that she stays sharp, she completes continuing education courses and updates her skills.
As a woman in today’s world, Ms. Vigil attributes her success to her ability to keep her faith and understand that bad times aren’t problems, but opportunities. Viewing her life in a positive way has helped her overcome some extremely tough experiences, including losing her son in 2011. Ms. Vigil persevered, however, and is proud of getting back on her feet in the wake of his death. A highlight of her journey was being featured on the cover of the fall/winter 2014/2015 edition of Longaberger magazine, which led to women coming together and supporting her during hard times.
Looking to the future, Ms. Vigil hopes to move back to Colorado and pursue new opportunities. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, politics, and tutoring the history of the Civil War. Ms. Vigil also supports the mission of Lone Star Veterans, and is an honored member of The International Women’s Leadership Association. If she could offer some advice to the younger generations, it would be to value friends and other women, and to not take anyone for granted.
