My name is Sara Dolatshahi and I work at the Control Room of a Nuclear Power Plant, where select few people ever get to visit. Currently, I am the first and the only female Control Room Shift Supervisor (CRSS) for Pickering Nuclear Units 5 to 8, one of the world's largest nuclear plants. I have a Masters degree in Nuclear Engineering from McMaster University (Canada) and I have been working for Ontario Power Generation since 1999. I held positions of varying responsibilities before being selected for the CRSS role, which is an authorized position requiring a licence from the federal government. As a CRSS, I am directly responsible for the safe operation of the plant and supervising a team of highly trained authorized nuclear professionals to reliably produce electricity. My primary role is to protect the safety of the public, personnel and environment. I coordinate the activities of the station at the start of each shift to ensure jobs can be performed safely and efficiently. I am also in charge of the personnel response during Emergency situations.
