Nuclear energy plays an important role in both our economies and our nation's clean energy future. At Entergy, we own, operate, support and provide management services to a national fleet of reactors in eight locations in the United States. We employ more than 6,000 employees across our nuclear operations, and we're committed to developing a diverse and inclusive workforce. In a new series, we'll be spotlighting some of the women who work at our Palisades Power Plant in Covert, Michigan, which provides enough energy to power about 800,000 homes.

Shelley Miller, Financial Analyst

'I enjoy working at Palisades because they value their employees and show appreciation in many ways. Yes, we are expected to close in 2022, but the experiences and opportunities you will receive from Palisades are top notch. You'll work with some of the brightest minds in various fields and create a network that could lead you to places you never dreamed. Entergy offers many opportunities at other locations. Your journey may start at Palisades, but you can write your own path.

'I started working at Palisades in 2014 for the finance department, as an accounts payable administrator. I was honestly unaware of the opportunities at Palisades and had never thought to apply. I'm glad I did, as I've since been promoted to financial analyst and begun serving as secretary for Women in Nuclear at Palisades.

'My advice to anyone thinking of applying is to take a chance.'

Nuclear generation is an important source of large-scale, clean, reliable, stable, affordable and virtually emission-free energy. At Entergy, we continue to invest in our nuclear generation assets to maximize their output and ensure safe, reliable operation.
