Inspiring Success Story

At age 18 and speaking only French,

Nadège left her home in West Africa
to learn English and become the
first member of her family to obtain a
secondary education. After successfully graduating from the
University of Oklahoma in Energy Management and Finance,
she began working for Shell Oil Company. Nadège’s success
story does not end there.
 
While working at Shell, strengthening her English, and
supporting her family in Africa, Nadège attended night
classes at Loyola University College of Law—where she
graduated magna cum laude. Now, as a transactional
attorney, she specializes in helping energy companies
with their offshore operations and regulatory compliance.
Nadège’s courage and appetite for new challenges is truly
inspiring.

Hobbies: Hang-gliding, paragliding, gardening and cooking.

Notable Achievement this Past Year:
Nadège was recently selected for the Institute of Energy
Law’s Inaugural Leadership Class. She attributes her success
to the people who supported her and helped her along the
way, recognizing that all of us can benefit from both giving
and receiving help.

Advice for other young lawyers:
"Be authentic. It is good to have role models, but find what is
true to yourself and embrace that person.
