Jeff has been a Senior Toxicologist and Vapor Intrusion Specialist with Hamp, Mathews, & Associates since 2004.

In his free time Jeff enjoys golfing (often competitively) with friends and family, and notes that his wife is ‘quite good’. Fun fact about Jeff is that he met Nick Saban while on vacation in Florida. Jeff plays a vital, lead role at HMA and we are grateful for his industry expertise and the connections he has built throughout his career. His thoughtfulness and respect that he shows his peers accentuate his career attributes.
