Meet the pros: Entergy Nuclear’s Laura Greer


Meet Laura Greer, an outage financial analyst at Entergy’s nuclear headquarters in Jackson, Miss.

“I support the nuclear fleet in analyzing and reporting every cost related to a plant outage, planned or otherwise,” said Greer. “I work with financial analysts at the sites to compile reports, forecast, monitor and analyze financial results as they relate to these outages.”

Greer, originally from Hattiesburg, earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting at the University of Southern Mississippi.

“I truly love to dive into data,” Greer said. “I was not originally interested in accounting when I began college, but I was doing cost benefit analysis before I even knew what they were. I realized how fascinated I was by learning how companies earn money. That’s when I knew I wanted to go into finance and accounting.”

During college, Greer interned at Cooperative Energy, which originally sparked her interest in the power industry along with her husband’s career as an electrical engineer with Entergy.

“My college internship gave me a great baseline knowledge of the power industry,” Greer said. “I was lucky enough to start my position with an understanding of the intricacies of the power industry, such as the regulatory organizations and how a power company earns money. Working in finance is like trying to solve a giant puzzle, and to be able to solve the puzzle we must understand how the company works together as a whole. We are always improving and striving for excellence.”

Greer explained how she feels lucky to be working for Entergy not only because it is in the utility industry, but also because of its mission and values.

“I really appreciate that safety is the number one priority at Entergy,” she said. “I would never want to work for a company that compromises safety. I am grateful to be working for a company that values safety and their employees while producing clean, carbon free energy.”

Greer recognizes the importance of teamwork and continuous learning for success.

“To me, teamwork and continuous learning are connected and an essential part of achieving excellence at Entergy and in my career,” she said. “Without cross-functional communication, there is no way to do the best job possible. When there’s open communication and the company and its departments work as a team, everyone benefits.”
