Bio

Ms. Lawrence has over 25 years of experience in the environmental engineering industry. With a background in geology, she has extensive experience in due diligence activities; scoping and executing soil and groundwater site assessment efforts; and implementing remediation system pilot testing, design and operation measures. Ms. Lawrence is particularly focused on the development of robust site conceptual models which sufficiently identify and effectively mitigate risk pathways; and validating that any data collected as part of these efforts is done in a manner to ensure maximum integrity for evaluation.  She has a keen eye for ensuring strategies are technically feasible, economically viable, and environmentally sustainable, while also identifying emerging issues or third-party impacts that could stymie project progression.  In addition to serving as a subject matter expert on hydrogeologic studies, remediation operations, and environmental sustainability measures, Ms. Lawrence has developed and led technical training courses to more than 2,000+ globally positioned personnel to improve knowledge transfer, promote advocacy, and drive consistent compliance with environmental policies and protocols.  
 
Prior to joining NewFields, Ms. Lawrence was a Senior Technical Advisor at ExxonMobil Environmental and Property Solutions in Spring, Texas; and prior to that worked in both the environmental consulting and regulatory arena throughout California.   Ms. Lawrence is a professionally registered geologist in the State of California.
