Adrienne LaPierre

Principal Consultant

Adrienne has three decades of experience in environmental consulting, with emphases on toxicology and human health risk assessment (HHRA). At Haley & Aldrich, she serves clients in the electric, gas, energy, real estate, manufacturing, and aerospace markets.

Adrienne has managed scores of multipathway risk assessments for petroleum release sites, Superfund sites, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) facilities, town gas sites, and various industrial properties. She has extensive experience in performing critical evaluations of the toxicological literature, defining dose-response relationships, establishing exposure limits, and evaluating potential causal associations between chemical exposures and documented adverse health effects.

With risk-assessment experience that is almost exclusively based in California, Adrienne has a detailed understanding the numerous California regulatory programs. Her extensive California experience includes providing strategic, risk-based guidance to numerous industrial clients during the investigation, remediation, and closure stages of projects, as well as successfully negotiating cost-effective, risk-based closure strategies with the California Environmental Protection Agency’s (Cal EPA) Department of Toxic Substances Control and regional water quality control boards (RWQCBs).

Adrienne brings exceptional risk communications skills to all projects, as much of her risk assessment experience has involved leading community meetings to explain complex, technical health-risk issues to public audiences and stakeholders.

“I work hard to stay at the forefront of technical HHRA issues and find ways to communicate about those issues that help parties with different priorities find common ground. That common ground means we can get to solutions that make communities better for everyone.”
