NAWBO's Woman Owned Business Award 

2019 Award Winner

Texas Business Owner

Paula Waggoner-Aguilar, CEO and Founder of The Energy CFO® (The Healthcare CFO's parent company), is one of six San Antonio women (out of approximately 25,000 women owned businesses in the South Texas region) who are recipients of the prestigious National Association of Women Business Owner's (NAWBO) 2019 Woman Business Owner Award.  Paula founded her first company, 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 handful of women entrepreneurs leaving their mark on the energy 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's San Antonio / Central Texas Chapter.
