Ms. Staveley has more than 40 years of experience in environmental toxicology, ecological risk assessment, and product stewardship, working with clients in both the public and private sector on a broad variety of environmental issues. She has extensive experience in ecotoxicology testing and risk assessment for pesticides, industrial chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, and is well versed in testing guidelines and risk assessment approaches developed under a variety of worldwide regulatory programs. 

For veterinary and human pharmaceutical companies, Ms. Staveley has prepared environmental assessments to meet regulatory requirements in the U.S. and Europe. For agricultural chemical companies, she has conducted data gap analyses, monitored ecotoxicology studies and conducted ecological risk assessments. Her expertise includes pollinator risk assessment and endocrine disruptor evaluation.

Ms. Staveley directs a team of scientists that conduct environmental assessments for veterinary and human pharmaceuticals, ranging from justifications for categorical exclusions to complex watershed-level assessments. She has monitored ecotoxicology testing programs, prepared Data Evaluation Reports, and prepared successful waivers from testing for various clients pursuant to pesticide registration under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). She has evaluated ecotoxicology tests and prepared weight-of-evidence arguments submitted under the U.S. EPA's Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program. She is experienced in predictive tools for environmental fate and effects modeling used in Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) programs, as well as the development of read-across strategies, preparation of robust summaries, development of test plans, and preparation of risk evaluations.
