Business Development Specialist

HiegelC@AyresAssociates.com

As a business development specialist, I identify opportunities where Ayres' brownfield redevelopment strategists, urban planners, and landscape architects can put their mix of skills to use for clients with environmental and planning challenges that need creative solutions.

I bring about two decades of experience as a civil/environmental engineer, data quality expert, and project manager, having served oil, gas, chemical, waste management, municipal, state, and federal clients. I have managed and participated in remediation projects involving soil vapor extraction, multi-phase vapor extraction, in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO), and monitoring of contaminant natural attenuation. I have a solid understanding of environmental regulations and compliance, and I'm well-networked with regulatory officials in the West and nationwide.

I've managed projects with complex soil, groundwater, surface water, and vapor intrusion problems on large sites. I've taken the lead on quality assurance/quality control standards and procedures on projects including quality assurance project plans (QAPP), sampling plans, and data validation/evaluation for use in compliance monitoring, risk assessments, and closures. I have a good command of EPA methods and data validation applications.

I have a passion for mentorship and enjoy managing large teams. Ayres' culture of integrity and long-term relationships are a good fit with my work ethic and conscientious devotion to clients over the long haul.
