Sarah translates the complex regulatory world into ideas and concepts that clients can implement in their business. In her 16 years of experience as a Chemical and Environmental Engineer and Compliance Specialist, she has managed the implementation of comprehensive multi-program compliance plans and has served clients as a regulatory liaison with federal, state, and local environmental agencies. She has directed client compliance activities under complex regulatory programs, including activities involving solid waste; hazardous waste; air; stormwater; industrial wastewater and pretreatment; aboveground and underground storage tanks; underground injection control; the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act; and Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plans. Sarah also has experience as the “regulated party,” providing in-house environmental management in a manufacturing setting. She takes a collaborative approach with clients, determining unique, cost-effective strategies based on their needs.
Sarah and her young family love their Portland neighborhood and spend most of their off-hours getting to know their neighbors. On any given weekend, you’ll find them collaborating on house projects, hanging out in the park, or sharing a meal together. Sarah enjoys cooking from scratch and crafting, and has the typical engineer’s weakness of thinking, “Hey, I could do that!” So chances are, if you receive a gift from her, it will be home-cooked or handmade.
