Women Leading in Science & Engineering

Teamwork is Key: Women in Leadership Series

Featuring Jamie Helmer, Director of Fuel Efficiency for Norfolk Southern

Jamie Helmer serves as director of fuel efficiency for Norfolk Southern. In her 26-year career with Norfolk Southern, she has worked in or with almost every department, from manager of process improvements to overseeing a locomotive shop and working on information technology projects. Educating colleagues, working hard, bringing people together, and building trust is vital – and those approaches are also how she has conquered her career in a strongly male dominated industry. Jamie holds a B.S in computer engineering and M.I.T. degree from Virginia Tech.
