In this role, Gosselin manages a multidisciplinary staff, administers the STB’s environmental rules, and oversees the agency’s environmental analysis program. She joined the STB in 2005 as a staff attorney in the Office of Proceedings, and in 2007 became an attorney for OEA. Gosselin was promoted to Deputy Director of OEA in 2018.
“In my time on the Board, I have been consistently impressed by Ms. Gosselin’s expertise as a skilled lawyer, dependable leader, and advisor on the environmental matters that are of great importance to the agency,” said STB Chairman Martin J. Oberman, who was sworn in as an STB member in January 2019 and became Chair in January 2021. “Her leadership, skill and insight have helped ensure that the Board and its stakeholders properly account for the environmental impacts of potential Board-authorized rail activities, thereby furthering the public interest and making sure we meet our mission objectives.”
