Anne Fitzpatrick

Anne Fitzpatrick’s passion for sailing and anything on the water led to an environmental career in contaminated sediment management and remediation. Over 26 years ago, she started as a field geologist with Hart Crowser located in Seattle Washington, then became a Vice President at RETEC/ENSR/AECOM, and recently joined Geosyntec Consultants Inc. in 2016 as a Senior Principal. She has in-depth experience managing high-profile investigation and remediation projects under a variety of regulatory programs with oversight from regulators, media, and the public. Hands-on experience includes sediment coring, sediment trap designs, radioisotope profiling, CERCLA cleanup goal negotiations, sustainability metrics, and interpretation of site conceptual models with physical, chemical, and biological components. She has led or participated in regulatory negotiations for 9 sediment CERCLA sites nationwide. In 2009, she was awarded Best Paper at the national ABA conference for Developing Long-Term Sustainable Management Strategies for Complex Contaminated Sediment Projects and has been called upon as a technical expert in sampling techniques to oversee controversial investigation projects. She has chaired several sessions at national sediment conferences, and was part of a technical expert panel tasked with revising the Washington State regulations for contaminated sediments. She is a University of Michigan graduate (BS 1986) and has an MS in marine science/toxicology from Western Washington University.  She lives in Seattle with her husband Chris, and two boats.
