During the past decade, Julia has built a niche practice for Geosyntec focused on data validation services and quality management. She specializes in project quality management, the preparation and review of quality assurance project plans (QAPPs), and the development of quality assurance management plans (QMPs). She also conducts data verification, data evaluation, data validation, and QA audits, including laboratory and on-site field audits.
To date, Julia has been the QA manager or provided QA oversight for more than 180 projects and has authored more than 100 QAPPs. She has developed an expertise that intersects all of Geosyntec's diverse practices, and her data validation experience includes chemical, radiological, and geotechnical parameters for sediments, soil, groundwater, and surface water, among other media. Julia has contributed her QA expertise to many proposals and business development efforts across the firm. She has also been a key contributor to some of Geosyntec's largest, most complex projects, such as the Berry's Creek Study Area RI/FS and the Asia Rare Earth LTSF D&D project. She also was a major contributor in the development of the Geosyntec QMP as well as the firm's U.S. EPA QMP and a recently completed Nuclear Quality Assurance-1 (NQA-1) QMP for nuclear facility projects.
Julia continues to advance the state of the practice by giving regular presentations on quality management at various professional meetings, including regional EPA meetings.
