AIKEN, S.C. (July 26, 2022) — Jessica Glover uses her experience and knowledge of music to bring harmony to her workplace.
This summer, Glover has put her 11 years of dedication to music to use as an intern at Savannah River Mission Completion (SRMC), the liquid waste contractor at the Savannah River Site.
Glover works in the Defense Waste Processing Facility (DWPF) in the Facility Support Group as a chemical coordinator. In this position, she has been assisting with tasks that include ordering, inspecting, and properly storing chemicals, as well as monitoring the chemicals being delivered onsite.
One of the most notable projects Glover has been a part of is the transition from formic acid to glycolic acid at DWPF. During this process, Glover has communicated with chemical vendor representatives and escorted them onsite to show them where the glycolic acid will be stored.
“Being a part of this transition within DWPF has been a learning curve for me,” Glover said. “It has helped me enhance my skills in communicating with professionals, and it has given me the opportunity to be a part of something big.”
Throughout the summer, Glover, who plays the flute, has connected her experience in the marching band to her internship at SRMC.
“Working at SRMC and playing in the marching band are very similar,” Glover said. “You have to find harmony as a team by communicating efficiently with each other and being open to change.”
In the future, Glover wants to go into the environmental chemistry field and participate in projects that involve water treatment, water or soil remediation, and improving the environment. She plans to use what she learned at SRMC to grow in her professional career.
“One of my goals for the future is to continue to grow and learn every day,” Glover said. “Also, I hope to one day have my own family and teach them all the lessons I have learned.”
SRMC comprises parent company BWX Technologies, Inc. with partners Amentum and Fluor. Its team brings the capabilities necessary to accelerate cleanup at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site through safe nuclear operations, optimized and integrated mission execution, and strong corporate governance.
