This video illustrates how LIGO's suspension systems worked to isolate the mirrors from ground vibrations thereby allowing LIGO to detect gravitational waves.  In addition the end of the video includes a snapshot of staff member Janeen Romie, the Detector Engineering Group Leader at LIGO, Livingston.
