Elizha grew up in both California and Arizona. She earned a chemical engineering degree from the University of California, Riverside in 2009 and joined WRPS shortly thereafter. She’s been with us ever since, and is currently a team lead within the Mission Analysis and Planning organization. The team uses process modeling tools to analyze various scenarios to plan future integrated field operations, like waste retrievals, waste transfers, and waste-reduction evaporator campaigns.“I love what I do because I get to interact with people from many different organizations, build relationships, and learn all the different puzzle pieces that it takes to do work in the tank farms. Most of all, I love the challenge of finding innovative and workable solutions to minimize disruptions to keep the mission moving forward.”Elizha and her husband, Dennis, stay busy at home taking care of two boys, two dogs, a cat, and some pet fish. They also started making homemade sourdough bread during the pandemic, a hobby which continues to this day.“We love making bread and sharing the fruits of our labor with others.”Thank you, Elizha, for all you do helping advance the cleanup mission.#WorkforceWednesday#WeAreWRPS ...
