Over the past 16 years, she has managed hundreds of projects from small site investigations to an award-winning, multimillion dollar benzene remediation/control endeavour for Suncor Energy. More specifically, her experience includes management of soil and groundwater contaminant evaluation and remediation, as well as formal Phase one and two Environmental Site Assessments and Records of Site Condition. She has also been involved with industrial site decommissioning projects, designated substance survey coordination, environmental reviews, and demolition coordination for former natural gas stations and a dairy manufacturer.

Heather’s distinguished specialty is managing large portfolios of work for clients. As an example, over the last ten plus years Heather has partnered with a confidential oil and gas client to help them manage their portfolio of hundreds of mercury-impacted sites across Ontario. Ranging in size from small town border stations to multiple-acre compressor stations, Heather has helped them modify their program to meet site-specific and regulatory needs. From managing the impacts in situ and monitoring the effects of ambient vapours, to providing tailored remedial measures, Heather has been as an integral part of this successful designated substance portfolio.
As a further dimension to her varied skillsets, Heather has international experience in environmental assessments in the United States, Indonesia, the Philippines, Gabon and Sudan.
