Sheena Lubitz
Title: Nuclear Materials Assistant
Company: Atomic Energy of Canada Limited

 Sheena Lubitz has been an employee at Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) since 2005. At Algonquin College in Pembroke, Ontario, Sheena studied Computerized Business Systems. After earning her certificate in this program, she returned to take Office Administration-Executive, receiving her diploma. Sheena started her career at AECL Chalk River as an office assistant. Her successful career path continued with the Nuclear Materials Management Branch, requiring additional training, courses and background checks.

In her first year at AECL, Sheena was able to share her experiences and educate other Office Administration-Executive students studying at Algonquin. She taught them about the skills she had acquired at school as well as at work, and how they can be applied to the job she currently holds. She got a lot of satisfaction knowing that she was using her experiences to encourage young students with the same interests as her.

Currently at AECL, Sheena works as a Nuclear Materials Assistant. Her latest project is preparing the declaration for all AECL sites to comply with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). While helping escort the IAEA/CNSC, she is responsible for answering all relevant questions. Sheena looks after the inventory of several AECL buildings and facilitates the transfers of AECL materials on site and all over the world. 

Sheena has been greatly influenced by her mother. After the passing of her mom this past year with cancer, Sheena sees her mom as an individual whose courage, strength, and willingness to fight were second to none. Her mom’s fight with cancer taught Sheena the value of never giving up, fulfilling your dreams, and living each moment to the fullest. Sheena says that her mom is a role model to every cancer patient out there – just as her mom was a role model to her.

Sheena enjoys being a part of WiN so that she can talk to other women about the organization in her branch. It allows her to learn more about the challenges other women face in the workforce. She has always believed that if you have a dream, you must never give up. WiN has reinforced her belief that pursuing goals is important; no matter how hard you have to work for it. Sheena has been a member of WiN since she attended the 5th annual WiN meeting in Ottawa in 2008.

As created Dec. 8, 2009.
