2019 WBOA WINNER 

Paula Waggoner-Aguilar, CEO and Founder of The Energy CFO®, is one of six San Antonio women who are recipients of the prestigious National Association of Women Business Owner's (NAWBO) 2019 Woman Business Owner Award.  Paula founded The Energy CFO® in the heart of the Eagle Ford back in 2013 at the apex of the Shale boom.  At the time (and still today), she is one of a very small number of women entrepreneurs in the oil and gas business.  She has overcome many obstacles, including surviving one of the worst energy sector downturns since the 1980s.  "In 6 short years, The Energy CFO® has evolved and diversified her business more than some companies have in 20 years.  The ability to be so innovative is a great talent, and Paula will continue to rise and be even more successful than she is now", says Shirley Crandall, President of NAWBO San Antonio.
