Jenna Laube, PE
Jenna Laube recently took a position at Textron Systems as an EHS Engineer. Before her move, Laube was nominated for her professional accomplishments at Groundwater & Environmental Services as a senior project engineer, designing equipment and treatment systems to clean up underground oil spills.
In a male-dominated field, Laube was one of five women senior project engineers at GES out of hundreds of employees across the U.S. Her engineering licensure extended across eight states – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia and the District of Columbia – setting her apart from many of her colleagues.
Her expertise had not gone unnoticed. Laube was selected by the Vice President of Engineering at GES to assist him in reviewing BP’s environmental remediation systems in the U.S. and internationally. Her technical skills and dedication to her career earned her five promotions in eight years.
“My clients know me as a highly knowledgeable and responsive consultant they can trust to make decisions on their behalf and ensure regulatory compliance,” she said. “I firmly believe Lucille Ball’s statement that it’s important to know what you know and know what you don’t know. This helps me to be honest in my conversations as a subject matter expert and identify gaps where I need to expand my knowledge.”
Outside of work, Laube worked to develop future female leaders through the Junior League of Baltimore. She regularly volunteers with environmental nonprofit organizations such as Blue Water Baltimore. She is also a trained crisis counselor and volunteers for the Crisis Text Line, as well as the Safe House of Hope to combat sex trafficking.
