Erin investigates and develops strategies for complex contaminated sediment, soil, porewater, and groundwater sites under federal Superfund and state-led cleanup programs. She has worked extensively within the Portland Harbor Superfund Site for multi-stakeholder groups, including public and private clients. Currently, she serves as a technical lead and project manager on several sediment remediation projects within the Lower Willamette River, overseeing multi-media sample design, implementation, and reporting for remedial investigations, feasibility studies, and long-term monitoring programs. Her active projects include River Mile 11 East of the Willamette River (at the upstream end of the Portland Harbor Superfund Site), a former landfill on Oregon's Tualatin River, the McCormick and Baxter Superfund Site, and a former logyard/sawmill in Tacoma, Washington.
Erin takes a transparent and science-based approach to her work, which enables her to collaborate effectively with regulators towards quicker resolution of technical challenges related to environmental contamination, compliance, and liability. She specializes in performing technical data analysis and developing innovative presentation techniques to communicate strategies and solutions to regulatory and multi-disciplinary audiences. She is an accomplished public speaker and presenter, and is adept at advocating on behalf of her clients.
