Women of WiN

Lisa Keetch

Lisa Keetch
Title: Fuel Storage Technician
Company: AECL

 As an employee of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited at the Chalk River Laboratories, Lisa works as a Nuclear Materials Storage Technician. Most of her time is dedicated to the handling, packaging, dispensing and transferring all fissionable material on-site, receipt of off-site shipments into several storage facilities, and acting as a liaison to the

International Atomic Energy Agency Inspectors and the Canadian Nuclear
Safety Commission. Her strong safety culture prompted her role as Branch Safety Co-ordinator. Lisa started her career with AECL as a Nuclear Armed Guard.

Since graduating with a diploma from Loyalist College of Applied Arts and Technology, Lisa has continued her education throughout her career and now holds several industry certifications. She pursued another career with Dupont Chemicals, bringing that knowledge and experience back with her and applying it to her current nuclear role, helping her to develop professionally.

She accredits Vica Suraveshkina, a child who had lived near Chernobyl, with having the most influence on her career journey. Lisa and her family have been hosts for a group that helps the children of Chernobyl, since 2000. Each summer she brings Vica to Canada, gives her a greater appreciation of the nuclear industry.

Being a part of a fast-paced environment, Lisa has taken great pleasure in working with her co-workers and interacting with customers. She enjoys new opportunities and challenges. Her biggest reward has been the chance to be a part of a dynamic team. The team handles several projects and as they near completion, time management and strategic planning skills are required to keep all customers satisfied. Her greatest satisfaction comes from knowing that all goals are achieved safely and on target.

The opportunity to get involved outside the normal work scope and interact with new people was what first attracted Lisa to join WiN. Since becoming a member in 2007 she has seen this group open up the doors of networking with other nuclear sites from around the world. At her previous position with Dupont, she was a part of a Women’s Growth Network. She is proud to see that the chapter at AECL has started to take off as she knows from experience, it provides a great entity for everyone to draw energy from.
