Dana Phillipe 
Machinist
Baker Hughes

Broken Arrow, OK

“I enjoy my career at Baker Hughes.  Manufacturing has kept a roof over my head and food on the table for my family.  I look forward to the future of more women being present in the growing manufacturing world. I am truly passionate about the positive impact women in manufacturing have been achieving in a male dominated industry.”

Dana excels as a machinist, completing 2012 with one of the best records in the Broken Arrow shop.  Her productivity is exceptional, as well as her focus on safety and quality.  She has also played a major role within the facility by becoming involved in the Baker Hughes Women’s Resource Group, both locally and at the corporate level.  She has represented the Broken Arrow facility as the facility delegate on several occasions during the 2011 – 2012 corporate reviews.   

Dana is also passionate about developing a connection between the company and local school districts in an effort to nurture and support local talent.  By sharing her experiences with students, she helps them understand the opportunities they have and how to attain them.  She is so compelling and accessible that female students ask for her by name, and state that she’s influenced their career path.  Dana is seen as an outstanding speaking resource, and is recognized by leadership for her efforts in speaking at a range of outside events.

Dana also contributes her time to a range of charities including Special Olympics, Susan G Komen Foundation and United Way.
