Wanda Munn has not followed a traditional career path.  After a number of years as a departmental secretary in Nuclear Engineering at Oregon State University, Wanda decided to become a Nuclear Engineer instead of typing the work of others. As a single parent, she returned to school and earned a BS degree in 1977.  She also earned an MBA from the University of Washington in 1982.

Wanda is retired from the Advanced Reactor Development Division of Westinghouse Hanford Company in Richland, Washington. She has 20 years of experience in nuclear engineering disciplines, design, construction, acceptance testing, startup, nuclear safety, and operation of the Fast Flux Test Facility.

Wanda is a SWE Life Member.  She was recognized as a SWE Distinguished New Engineer in 1985 and named a SWE Fellow in 1998.  Wanda was an active member and past president of the Eastern Washington Section.

Wanda has received numerous awards including the McCall Life Pattern Award for women in re-entry in 1977 and the American Nuclear Society National Public Communications Award in 1988.
