NRC names Childs resident inspector
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected MechSE alumna Natasha Childs (BSME ’99) as resident inspector at the Sequoyah nuclear power plant near Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee. The two-unit plant is operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority.
Childs joined the NRC in October 2008 as a project engineer in the Resident Inspector Development Program in the NRC’s Region II office in Atlanta. She successfully completed the Resident Inspector Qualification Program and was the resident inspector at the Crystal River nuclear power plant in Florida until she was assigned to the Oconee facility in South Carolina in 2013.
Prior to joining the NRC, Childs spent eight years working as a design engineer and system engineer at the Palisades nuclear power plant in Michigan and the Watts Bar nuclear power plant in Tennessee.
