My name is Jessica, I am a very motivated hardworking young man. I am eager, self motivated, and proactive. I just recently purchased my first home in Knoxville and love what the area has to offer. I am also always looking to further my education. I love what I do as a System Operator, as well as working on the maintenance side of it. For example, operating various types of heavy equipment, Hydro electric units that produce 20.5 Megawatts each, pre-operating inspections on all heavy equipment, working on main breaks, leak call outs and much more. I put safety first when working with others, as well as always thinking two steps ahead. I am a very versatile and an easy learner with a great personality. I work to fulfill all systems needs, and although it can be stressful, I enjoy every second of it. I feel that I am easy going, flexible, and a hard worker ready to learn and contribute to team success.

Connexus Energy - System Operator
Ramsey, MN, 01/2020 - 08/2022

Background of San Diego County Water Authority: the agency is a wholesale water agency for all of San Diego county. We also have three Hydro electric facilities that we actively operate today. Two of those units are twenty Megawatts each (Lake Hodges) and the 3rd is a five Megawatt unit in Rancho Penasquitos. As a systems operator, we are responsible for operating these facilities as well as doing routine inspections while they are running. We work with a Department at San Diego Gas and Electric called Transmission System Operations to request opening and closing breakers when Lake Hodges is down for maintenance. We open and close these breakers through SCADA. On top of that, part of a system operator role is ordering raw and treated water from Metropolitan Water District as well as operating two other sources in the county, Carlsbad Desal plant and Twin Oaks Valley Water Treatment Plant. All changes we make are through our SCADA software that operates valves, pumps, motors, etc. We take request in Cubic Feet per Second from the twenty-six agencies that rely on us to provide them with either raw or treated water. We do routine Bac-T samples every monday, as well as monitor Nitrites through our system every Wednesday or as needed depending on current system configuration. We take on the role of properly disinfecting pipes returning back to service. We maintain proper chemical inventories for injecting Sodium hypochlorite into our system to boost our residual by combining the free ammonia back up with free chlorine to make monochloramine's. System Operators are also responsible for applying LO/TO whenever we have a shutdown, system reconfiguration, or whenever an agency request LO/TO on one of the many flow control facilities we operate.
