Meet our growing team.
Full-stack, full-function means full discipline.
Just like the geography of oil, our team is deep and wide in our capabilities.
We invite you to meet our team on a patio for a beer, but in the meantime, meet a few of our rockstars.

Senior Landman Consultant
Azure Solutions Architect Consultant
Production Engineering Consultant
Operations problems have met their match with Jessie. Her experience in Production Engineering and Data Analytics help both large and small operators in the industry. Primarily her work has been with large well counts in gas basins over the full life cycle – from planning a new drill to setting a P&A marker. Her work has brought about process changes from optimizing chemical treatments and prioritizing work to how production surveillance is performed. When Jessie isn’t making data work, you can find her perpetually bruised due to her love for rock climbing.
Reserves Analyst Consultant
With a healthy appetite for efficient processes, Haley’s experience in development planning support, business analysis, data visualizations and corporate reserves reporting is the perfect complement to the VI team. She has worked in multiple basins including the DJ, San Juan, and Eagle Ford basins. Haley is acknowledged for asset evaluation, business process optimization, as well as implementing and managing SEC compliant reserves. She is also the best Colorado ambassador you can find as she is an expert in what the state has to offer: hiking, paddle boarding and craft breweries.
Business Manager consultant
Contracts, operations, and problems are Tess’ specialty. She is driven to support both clients and VI consultants with contractual agreements, customer relations, and operational decision-making with the highest level of support and efficiency. Her unique and varied background informs her work in surprising ways – she has worked as an aerospace contracts manager, pharmacy technician, dog trainer, and veterinary practice manager, and it turns out teaching humans is not so different from teaching dogs.
