For Women’s History Month, HRA is featuring some of our women employees who contribute to all aspects of the company!
Dr. Heather Lee Miller joined HRA in 2005 and works in both HRA’s History and CRM divisions. On the history side of the house, Heather has worked on complex research and writing projects pertaining to federal, state, and local environmental and tribal litigation. On the CRM side of the house, Heather works on projects related to cultural resources management, Section 106/110 and NEPA/SEPA compliance, the development of historic contexts, inventory and evaluation, and mitigation reports. She has been researching the history of and following closely the emergence of concern and growing regulation of the PFAS class of chemicals, which she considers her specific area of expertise along with chlorinated solvents (TCE, PCE, and TCA), PAHs, PCBs, hexavalent chromium, and 1,4 dioxane, to name a few. Heather is a shareholder in HRA and became Vice President of Business Development in 2018. Heather spends her free time doing yoga, researching family history/genealogy and a book she hopes to write someday on her family and the Green Bay Packers, and playing guitar in an occasional band (next up is a short-term Eagles cover band set to play in November 2023). After 18 years at HRA, she has many favorite projects (some of which are confidential), but two of her favorites in the recent couple years have been a confidential history of flooding on a river in Kansas and Oklahoma and a history of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
