Christina Lovins

Vice President

Ms. Lovins is a Vice President at Environment & Archaeology, LLC with 20 years of experience in wetland delineation, erosion and sediment control and environmental permitting compliance. She began her career as a field biologist, advancing into a business role of senior project management, and thus can grasp an overall awareness of a project objective and its ramifications from the field to the reviewing agency’s office. Currently, her primary responsibilities include managing and conducting environmental permit preparation, agency consultation/coordination, site specific Erosion and Sediment Control Plan preparation, wetland and stream delineations, endangered species surveys, aquatic biology surveys, and teaming efforts for EIS and EA production. Each of the listed responsibilities have been implemented on hundreds of miles of linear corridors and hundreds of acres of private and commercial parcel developments. Ms. Lovins’ years in the consulting business have resulted in a well-rounded knowledge of our natural resources, effective management of those resources as coordinated with the jurisdicational agencies, and how to effectively navigate the permit processes to achieve the most mutually desirable end result for the applicant and the environment.

Ms. Lovins’ management responsibilities cater to the preparation of federal, state and local-level permits and clearances pertaining to 404/401 permitting, NPDES permitting, and state-level stream and wetland permitting. Her continuing project experience and professional training have established a strong foundation in permit knowledge and field capabilities.
