As a teenager with a dream to develop makeup, Jenni Dickson set out to see what kind of education she needed and that’s how she found chemical engineering.

She attended Oklahoma State University and found “the challenge and path seemed like the right choice.” While in college, Jenni received a summer internship with Koch Fertilizer in Enid, Oklahoma, which turned into a full-time job offer.

Having been with Koch Fertilizer for 11 years, Jenni loves “all the opportunities to be the best ‘you’, you can be.

“It’s not just encouraged; it’s expected we do the things we not only are good at, but that we also enjoy.”

Jenni currently works as the process and controls leader for the Enid plant.

“In process controls, we have a chance to make a huge difference for the company and the employees with the work we do,” Jenni says. “We can make people’s jobs easier while also creating more value for the company. It’s very rewarding and a fun thing to be a part of.”

She says it’s fulfilling to be a part of a team that is making noticeable, unique and important changes that make a major difference in the plant’s reliability.

Through the years, Jenni’s seen many changes and her advice for others pursuing engineering is to be ready for anything.

“There is so much change all around us in technology, the way we work and what’s important — the ability to accept change and transform yourself is key.”
