    "They wanted to create a comfortable environment where women from all across the diverse Lab could network, collaborate, share ideas and gain a broader perspective"

    Creating Los Alamos Women's Group

    Inspired by their informal dinner discussions, Raeanna Sharp-Geiger and a few of her female colleagues decided to create a new resource a few years ago, the Los Alamos Women’s Group. They wanted to create a comfortable environment where women from all across the diverse Lab could network, collaborate, share ideas and gain a broader perspective of the Lab’s mission.

    The Women’s Group has successfully provided a resource for constructive feedback and mentoring opportunities, encouraged personal growth and sponsored technical seminars to increase awareness of work across the broad Laboratory.

    This year, the group she helped launch named her as one of the Lab’s Women Who Inspire.

    Public service is not new to Sharp-Geiger. As an undergraduate, she studied criminal justice, working in an inner city before returning to college to get a master’s in Public Administration and, later, another master’s in Environmental Health and Industrial Hygiene.

    Creating a cleaner, greener environment

    Today, she helps manage the Lab’s Environment, Safety and Health directorate (ADESH). The name and tasks may be complex, but the directorate has one focus: protection of the workers, public and the environment while getting work done.

    Sharp-Geiger helps identify, evaluate and control chemical, physical, biological, radiological and environmental hazards in a way that facilitates the Lab’s mission while meeting regulatory requirements.

    She is committed to taking care of each other at work and at home.

    The new rocket fuel and motor design adds a higher degree of safety by separating the fuel from the oxidizer, both novel formulations that are, by themselves, not able to detonate.
