Power Principles: A Conversation with Katie Shepley

Published: 09/13/2017

Katie Shepley, a utility performance manager with Entergy Texas, has been part of the Entergy family for five years. 

What’s your power principle at work? I’ve always been drawn to this quote: “No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.” I truly believe this and therefore strive to always offer help where I can and always show my appreciation for the help I have been given.

What motivates you to live and work safe? My family motivates me in pretty much every decision I make, and that is especially true when it comes to living and working safely.

What is the best work-related advice you have ever been given? Listen more than you talk.

Are you involved in your community? If so, how? I try to stay active in my community as much as my work and family life will allow. I believe that everyone desires to live in a safe, welcoming and engaging community and that doesn’t just happen by accident; our community is what we make it so I try to do my part.

I recently joined the Entergy Pride and Multicultural and Women’s employee resource groups. I also serve as a member of the company’s eastern region volunteer council. As well, I’m a board member of the Fire Museum of Texas, secretary-treasurer of the Edison Museum, and vice-chair of the Southeast Texas Young Professionals organization.
