Deb Parker has a B.S. degree in Mathematics from Texas A&M University - Commerce, and an M.S. in Operations Research from Stanford University. Deb developed requirements, designed, and programmed the scheduling models for five major gas transportation pipelines (Kern River, Northwest, Texas Gas, Gulf South, and Southern Star). Her generic modeling designs have allowed modeling for new customers to be done quickly and with less expense. Deb has been working in the natural gas industry since 1997.
