Kristin Zaitz, Civil Engineer, Project Manager at Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant, Co-Founder of Mothers for Nuclear: My parents taught us about leaving wilderness more pristine than we found it. Dad took me backpacking as soon as I was old enough to carry a pack. We slept under the stars and marveled at the expanse of the sky, and our small place in a big universe. Knowledge is power. When I was pregnant, I inspected the inside of a containment dome during a refueling outage. I knew from my dosimeter that I got less radiation exposure than my coworker who ate a banana that day. I have run marathons for the last decade and have started taking Oliver, 6 and Kate, 3 on runs with me. Their little lungs work so hard — I feel glad we live near a nuclear plant, which emits no air pollution, and is far away from the polluted skies of Los Angeles and New York
