On behalf of clients, Marlaina navigates regulatory compliance, permitting, and stakeholder interest group negotiations, while managing project metrics to help clients reach project goals on schedule, while controlling project costs. She conducts investigations and feasibility study assessments, selects and designs remedies, and oversees contracting and implementation to successfully remediate contaminated sites. Marlaina manages and provides engineering design for projects throughout Canada, the United States, and Germany.

In her remediation work, Marlaina focuses on contaminated soil and groundwater. This work often includes process-flow modeling, hydraulic calculations, heat and material balances, engineering design packages, and equipment sizing, specification, and selection. An effective manager and communicator, she leads teams as they prepare bid packages, cost estimates, and schedules to meet goals and manage costs.

Clients often turn to Marlaina to apply innovative, first-to-field technologies, including in situ chemical oxidization and enhanced in situ bioremediation recirculation systems to treat chlorinated solvents and other contaminants. When appropriate, she combines these technologies with electrokinetics to evenly distribute amendments in low permeability soil. Her experience also includes applying self-sustaining smoldering combustion (STAR technology) to remediate coal tar and implementing conventional remediation technologies including excavation, groundwater extraction and treatment with biological enhancement, soil vapor extraction, and multiphase extraction.
