Power Principles: A Conversation with Jarrod Clavelle

Published: 04/07/2017

Jarrod Clavelle is the manager of systems and components engineering at Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station. Jarrod has been with the Entergy family for 22 years.

What's your power principle at work? "We split atoms.” I frequently say that “we split atoms” as a reminder that we must carefully control our nuclear plants to protect our customers, while powering life. What we do is special and unique.

What motivates you to live and work safely? My family and friends motivate me. Living and working safely ensures that I will be present for the many loves of my life for many more years to come.

What's your best work-related advice? Be audacious when creating your goals – dream big.

When did you first learn about Entergy's Waterford 3 Steam Electric Station? While preparing to end my active duty in the U.S. Nuclear Navy, one of my peers obtained a copy of a list of all of the nuclear stations in the country, along with addresses and points of contact. To my surprise and delight, I found Waterford 3 – just about 100 miles away from my hometown. The rest is history.
