Power Principles: A Conversation with Marcia Jones

Published: 04/14/2017

Marcia is an administrative specialist at River Bend Station and has been a part of the Entergy family for 31 years.

What's your power principle? My power principle is to be respectful and lend a helping hand whenever possible, whether it’s at work or home.

What motivates you to live and work safely? My family motivates me to live safely. I'm a wife, mother of three and grandmother of two. My family is the love of my life, and I want to be here for years to come.

Do you have a favorite work project? In 2009, I was selected to be part of the implementation team for a significant software system upgrade. I then had the opportunity to lead the class to teach my fellow River Bend administrative team. It was an honor and privilege to serve on this project. I learned a lot about what goes on behind the scenes in putting a program together. 

When did you first learn about Entergy's River Bend Nuclear Station? When I was 22 years old, I moved back home from Texas and was looking for work. Since my sister was working in the mailroom at River Bend, I decided to try my luck and apply. To my surprise, the contracting company, Stone & Webster, hired me.
