Client Comments

Human Health Risk Assessment:
"I want to give special recognition to Jenifer for her hard work and [for] painstakingly documenting every comment and discussion point from the multitude of conference calls and meetings we had with [the regulatory agency] and their contractor over the past 18 months. Without this detailed documentation we could not have produced this document in record setting time. Each meeting was conducted in a professional and concise manner such that [the regulatory agency] gained complete confidence in your team and your risk assessment expertise. I consider this trust … to be invaluable as we move … toward developing a final remedy for this site."
