Meet Our Team - Amalia Lopez
Amalia backpacking the Tahoe Rim Trail in 2019 (170 miles in 11 days!)
Meet Amalia Lopez, our newest addition to the Flux Energy Systems Engineering Team and our Project Coordinator. Amalia started her career in Houston and eventually made the move to California to work on an asset reliability and integrity project at the Chevron Refinery in El Segundo, CA. She is proud to have played a key role in making the Chevron refinery safer and more reliable. She was able to combine engineering analysis and previous industry failures to minimize the impact Chevron El Segundo has on the environment, the people that work there, and the surrounding neighborhoods. She brings more than 5 years of experience working with multiple stakeholders, leading various process improvement initiatives, and running projects smoothly.
What’s your favorite part about working for Flux?
My favorite part about working for Flux is that I learn something new every day. As a fast-growing company in a rapidly developing field, Flux gives me the opportunity to be innovative and the ability to work independently. There is a lot of dynamic energy that drives progress and helps us provide the best service to our clients. I am excited to use my project management and engineering background to lead the successful completion of projects and learn from industry experts.
What you do when you are not working?
My family is dispersed between Colorado, Alaska, and the Dominican Republic, so I like to travel to see them whenever I get the chance. When I am in LA, you will usually find me running and training for my next marathon or ultra-marathon. One of my goals is to eventually run a 100-miler trail race. I also enjoy biking, backpacking, climbing, playing beach volleyball, and finding any reason to bake. Before starting at Flux, I took a couple of months off to backpack some long-distance trails including the Tahoe Rim Trail, Colorado Trail, and the Salkantay Trail in Peru. I have visited and camped at over 30 national parks in the US, and my goal is to eventually visit them all!
What are your goals for the future?
My long-term goal is to eventually serve as a leader and mentor in the clean energy sector. My immediate goal is to be able to integrate and translate complex information for a broad spectrum of audiences, from engineers to homeowners, and between various stakeholders. I believe that everyone, regardless of socioeconomic background, deserves equal access to green spaces, opportunities to learn about such spaces, and the resources to live healthier and more sustainable lifestyles.
