Women of WiN

Emily Salvalaggio

Emily Salvalaggio
Title: Applied Science and Engineering Trainee
Company: Ontario Power Generation

 Women in Nuclear was a perfect fit for Emily Salvalaggio, an Assistant Technical Engineer/Officer with the Computers & Controls Design Engineering department of Ontario Power Generation. She felt WiN was a fantastic organization aimed toward the success of women in the nuclear industry – something she wanted to be a part of.

Emily joined WiN with the aspiration to be surrounded with successful women and perhaps obtain the inspiration to be the best she can be with regards to her career. As a graduate from the University of Western Ontario with a BESc in Electrical Engineering specializing in Power Systems and on the Dean’s Honour List, Emily performs technical work for the Digital Control Computer System at the OPG Pickering nuclear power plant. Emily furthered her education by obtaining a Technological Entrepreneurship Certificate.

The most rewarding part of her job is having the opportunity to perform analysis and hands-on work with electronic components. Emily plays an instrumental role in projects being delivered on time and on budget; this is something that gives Emily personal fulfillment on the job.

Emily prepares technical documents that are used continuously; again, this aspect of her occupation gives her personal satisfaction and motivation. When asked about her most rewarding project, Emily told WiN that it was certainly her participation in the 2010 Vacuum Building Outage. This type of project is vital to the success of the Pickering plant.

The most influential person in her life, with regards to her career, was her Power Systems professor in her fourth year of her university education. Advice for today’s youth - “Try your hardest and you will succeed!”.

In her spare time, you can find Emily playing basketball, softball, relaxing at the beach or shopping!!

Thank you Emily for being a proud member of WiN-Durham and an inspirational Woman of WiN.
