Supervising Environmental Professional

Kathy, who recently relocated from the East Coast to join GSI, has more than 30 years of experience managing environment projects in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. She works with clients, stakeholders, and regulatory agencies to address environmental issues and move contaminated sites toward development and site closure. Her experience includes managing projects in commercial/industrial, brownfields, and governmental facilities within an array of state and federal regulatory programs.

Over the course of her 30 year career, Kathy has worked on assessing and remediating upland sites such as former and existing manufacturing facilities, bulk fuel terminals, pipelines, railroad terminals and derailments, brownfield developments, federal facilities, power producers, etc. She has extensive experience assessing and mitigating sites for vapor intrusion, primarily due to chlorinated solvent impacts. She has addressed sites with impacts from pesticides, DNAPLs, solvents, dioxins/furans, PCBs, PAHs, metals, petroleum, and phenols. She uses real-time assessment methods when possible to minimize costs and accelerate completion schedules. Kathy has expertise in ex-situ and in-situ treatment technologies such as chemical oxidation, enhanced reductive dechlorination, and soil blending to move sites to closure or a limited monitoring program. Kathy recently managed the final cleanup activities and delisting of an US EPA NPL Superfund site in North Carolina that had been impacted with phenols and metals.
