Exelon Generation Senior Training Instructor Mark Rasmussen came to Byron Station in 1982 to help with the initial startup of the plant's two nuclear units. Thirty-five years later, Mark's daughter Suzy is busy with a nuclear startup project of her own – working as a Mechanical Field Engineer for Southern Co. on the new Vogtle Units 3 and 4.
 
"I think while we are moving towards a future where there are more females in tech and science careers, we are not where we need to be yet," Suzy said. "I volunteer so much because I want to show young women that having a career in STEM is more than beakers, lab coats and chalkboards. It's solving problems, working with people, and helping the world."
