Rigzone: Why do you love what you do?

Cedeno: I love the challenges of the environment I work in, the camaraderie of a bonded crew and the precision of a DP system that allows an 800-foot ship to stay within one meter of a set point.

Ryals: The challenge of it all – from being a woman working in a man’s world to achieving a high level USCG license, to the thrill of navigating an 800-foot long drillship in and out of a field, there’s a challenge every day – and I rise to it.

D’Eramo: I love working with an international workforce.
