RICHLAND, Wash. – Ann Shattuck, an employee with EM’s Richland Operations Office contractor Mission Support Alliance (MSA), was presented with the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce ATHENA Leadership Award Jan. 31 at the 2018 Women in Business conference.
The ATHENA Award recognizes women for professional excellence, community service, and actively assisting other women in their attainment of leadership skills.
Shattuck, director of MSA’s Environmental Integration Services, has worked at the Hanford Site for more than 25 years, starting as an engineer before transitioning to project management and then to functional/group management. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Washington State University and is a professional engineer and a certified Project Manager Professional.
“As Ann’s supervisor, I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this award. Ann is committed to both the safety and success of the Hanford cleanup mission and to our community,” said Mike Wilson, MSA Vice President of Environmental, Safety and Health. “Her drive and passion instills confidence in everyone who has the opportunity to work with her.”
An active participant in MSA’s volunteer programs, MSA Cares and the MSA Women’s Synergy Network, Shattuck said she enjoys giving her time and talent to local organizations that help those in need and that promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education to young women. She also serves on the board of directors for the Domestic Violence Services of Benton and Franklin Counties.
“I was very surprised, honored, and humbled to receive this award,” Shattuck said. “We all have the opportunity to make a difference, both professionally and personally, and my goal is to inspire those around me to do so.”
