As the owner and Principal Industrial Hygienist at Aura, Mona assists clients in solving complex industrial hygiene and environmental health problems. Utilizing her varied experience in industry, education, and environmental public health, she is able to apply my technical skills and different perspectives to find viable and practical options for clients who may be struggling with assessment or mitigation of occupational and environmental exposures. As someone who has experience in knowledge translation and risk communication, she also assists clients with stakeholder engagement activities particularly in controversial environments.
She managed and conducted numerous microbial indoor air quality investigations involving commercial and residential buildings, schools, and recreational facilities. She was designated as an expert witness in several litigation cases, with most cases reaching settlement before deposition or trial testimony was necessary. However, she was deposed multiple times and has had trial testimony experience in cases involving mould and legionella exposures. Currently, she is the Chapter Director of the Indoor Air Quality Association Vancouver Chapter.
