The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Laura Micewski as the agency’s new Senior Resident Inspector at the Susquehanna nuclear power plant, in Salem Township (Luzerne County), Pa., effective Feb. 6. Micewski joins NRC Resident Inspector Travis Daun at the twin-reactor site, which is operated by Talen Energy.
“Laura Micewski is a highly trained and talented inspector who is committed to safety and the NRC’s mission of protecting people and the environment. In this new assignment, she will play
a vital role in assuring that the Susquehanna nuclear power plant continues to meet the high standards set by the agency,” said NRC Region I Administrator Dan Dorman.
Most recently, Micewski served as a reactor operations engineer in the NRC’s Office of New Reactors. She joined the NRC in its regional office in Texas as a project engineer in 2009, after 14 years as a Naval Surface Warfare Officer. She holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the U.S. Naval Academy and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School.
Each U.S. commercial nuclear plant site has at least two NRC resident inspectors. They serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections, monitoring significant work activities, and interacting with plant workers and the public.
