Rachel’s primary duties range from asbestos mitigation to contaminated groundwater cleanup on active military bases and formerly used defense sites, but she primarily focuses on emerging contaminants through her PFAS response efforts at Colorado’s Air Force Bases and through her involvement in drafting new site specific groundwater standards.

Rachel earned a BS from Cornell University and a MS from Colorado School of Mines. Originally from Northern California, she has lived in NY, AK, ME, Denmark and finally Colorado. She spends much of her free time renovating her century old home in Denver.

He and his wife Liana moved to Colorado in 2006 from the Hudson Valley of New York, and they are raising two daughters in the foothills of Golden. In the free time that a parent with two primary school-aged children might have to pursue their own interests, Kevin is always trying to find live music to attend. Otherwise, he likes to camp in the summer, to find a hut trip to take in the winter, and he likes to hunt in the fall.
