Safety Analysis Engineer, Nuclear Services Group (NSG)
Time with ENERCON: 8 months
As Sarah begins with ENERCON, her main responsibilities are preparing calculations, evaluations, engineering change packages and licensing documents associated with mechanical, nuclear or chemical safety analysis. This includes assessing nuclear plant safety programs, design basis documents, key calculations, processes, and procedures in accordance with current design and regulatory requirements.
What is your vision for your role?
I hope to grow as an engineer and leader in this role. Safety is such an important aspect of nuclear culture, so I hope I can contribute as much as I can, which I believe is very possible in this role. I am very extroverted, and I hope I can use that trait to build relationships with clients and assure them of ENERCON’s quality service.
What is something many people may not know about you?
When I’m not working with safety analysis, I’m a choreographer for various dance organizations. I’ve been dancing for 19 years and had the opportunity in college to start choreographing. My favorite style is hip hop, but I’m trained in many different styles.
What do you enjoy about working at ENERCON?
I started working at ENERCON right out of grad school, so having a professional career is a bit different than the internships I had throughout college. I feel independent and confident here, but also supported as my supervisors and project leads have been great about making me feel useful, and it makes me feel like I have a lot to offer.
What’s the most unusual/surprising thing you’ve encountered in your job?
Honestly, I’m mostly surprised about the catered lunches! I thought free food would be a luxury of college, but with group meetings, lunch & learns, and celebrations, I have been blessed.
