Whether celebrating decades of working at NPPD or securing just a handful of years under their belts, a few things are clear: NPPD teammates have great career ambitions, personal connections, and an invested interest when it comes to public power in Nebraska.
Tell us about your job.
My job within the Electronic Records System team has a variety of duties. Before I was assigned the records administration of contracts/agreements in late 2010, I helped produce more complex and technical documents for the District, like the Updated Safety Analysis Report for Cooper Nuclear Station and several different training, safety and technical manuals for various locations.
Currently, whenever the District borrows money for major projects like transmission lines or plant upgrades, I help the Finance department with the official statement relating to bonds issued by the District and the offering statement relating to commercial paper notes issued by NPPD.
I also help with the District’s mass mailings and support teammates on the use of Microsoft and other software applications. As far as duties as Records administrator go, I basically implement, maintain and administer the Corporate Records database to ensure safe storage and easy retrieval of archived documents.
The people I work with are great because we strive for excellent customer service. It definitely motivates me to come to work every day with a helpful and positive attitude.
Proudest moment in your career?
My proudest moment was being able to help with Cooper’s Refueling Evolution (RE) 21 in 2003 and RE 22 in 2005. In RE 21 and 22, we helped man a support center to assist engineers, draftsman and other workers by entering information into CNS’ Paperless Condition Reporting System. Getting through all the testing associated with the badging process was a big accomplishment for me.
What’s your favorite part of public power month, or just October, in general?
October is my favorite month of the year. I love everything about it — the crisp, cool weather; the changing leaves; harvest being in full swing; taking my children to a pumpkin patch; Halloween; college football and volleyball; and of course, my service anniversary with the District!
Would you say you’re left- or right-brained?
I am left-brained all the way, both at work and at home. I am not a creative person at all, so it’s a good thing my daycare provider is! She is always doing craft projects with the kids so that kind of lets me off the hook at home. An instance where I can bring a little creativity to the table at work is when I get to design a PowerPoint presentation for a customer, but thank goodness for design templates, so I don’t have to strain my right brain too much!
