Virginia has more than 30 years of global experience in strategically developing resources, resolving environmental liability, and sustaining natural capital. Her achievements include protecting biodiversity, negotiating offsets to mitigate impacts, developing defensible resolution for sites involving multiple contaminants in groundwater and soils for petrochemical and manufacturing sites, legacy mining sites, pipelines, and refineries. She has also provided technical leadership and regulatory advocacy during incident responses for petroleum spills and hazardous substance releases.
She acquired her natural resource damage assessment experience both in expertise of process and utilization of quantification methodologies. She has a deep appreciation of how natural capital underpins quality of life, and she strategizes beyond the confines of environmental regulatory standards to obtain restoration and resolution with out-of-the-box thinking to build the bridge of balance.
Virginia began her career in the oil fields of Texas and grew up in Colorado. She enjoys hiking, snow skiing, white water rafting, and exploring old mine sites—she’s also a classical pianist.
