Michelle Spiezio

Chemical Engineer

My experience has taught me that engineering and environmental protection go hand-in-hand. They do not need to hinder each other, but rather should work synergistically to continuously improve our world and the environment we live in.

Michelle Spiezio is a chemical engineer with over eight years of experience supporting multiple programs under the Toxic Substances Control Act for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. During this time, she has provided support for comprehensive risk evaluations of toxic substances as well as screening-level assessments of new chemicals, affording her the ability to provide tailored technical approaches for any level of detail needed. Michelle excels at evaluating industrial and commercial processes to identify potential sources of chemical release and occupational exposure, and then applying her existing knowledge with the available information and data to quantify such releases and exposures. Her proficiency with this comes from her extensive experience supporting the development of chemical risk evaluations and modeling approaches coupled with her practical experience conducting facility inspections under multiple sections of TSCA and other environmental statutes. With this combination of technical and field experience, Michelle approaches problems from a well-rounded and holistic perspective.

Michelle has a B.S. in chemical engineering with a minor in environmental engineering from Northwestern University. She also holds a professional chemical engineering license. In her free time, Michelle enjoys cooking, trying out new hobbies, and catching up with friends and family.
