Venesia Hurtubise - Compliance Crusader and Supreme Science Lawyer

Venesia Hurtubise is the MicroCare Vice President of Technology & Compliance. She is instrumental in driving MicroCare’s technological advancements and ensuring regulatory compliance across its global operations.

“Ensuring compliance is a top priority, as we strive to maintain the highest standards of quality and safety across all our MicroCare operations,” said Venesia.

Collaborative and Approachable

Her experience in leading cross-functional teams and implementing innovative technologies plays a pivotal role in continuously improving MicroCare’s operational efficiency, enhancing our product portfolio and fueling our expansion efforts to deliver exceptional solutions to our customers worldwide. She is known for her collaborative, approachable nature, and her skill at building strong professional relationships with her MicroCare colleagues and industry partners.

Meeting the Challenge

Prior to her current role, Venesia served as a MicroCare Technical Chemist from 2014-2021. During that period, she split her time between laboratory work and visiting MicroCare customers throughout the New England region. Through those interactions she gained a deep understanding of the critical cleaning challenges that our MicroCare clients face. During her visits, she demonstrated exceptional technical expertise and dedication to our MicroCare customers. This earned her the prestigious MicroCare “Meeting the Challenge” award in 2017. Venesia was further recognized as one of Products Finishing magazine’s 40-Under-40 rising stars in the metal finishing industry in 2019.

A Different Kind of Scientific Law

Venesia holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and forensic science and a master’s degree in green chemistry, from Imperial College in London, England. She also earned a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Connecticut and is admitted to practice law in Connecticut. Venesia is recognized by critical cleaning professionals for her contributions to the industry and has been a featured speaker at numerous conferences and seminars.

On a Personal Note

Outside of the office, Venesia likes to keep as busy as possible. She is vice chair of the Connecticut Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights where she collaborates with her fellow committee members to research civil rights topics that impact both state and federal regulations. At a local level, she is a member of her town Human Rights and Relations Commission, and she volunteers for the Bureau of Education and Services for the Blind as a reader.

Although Venesia has never lost her passion for chemistry and science, she now spends her free time geeking-out over the law. She loves to listen to legal podcasts and keep up with everything happening at the Supreme Court. Venesia even briefly hosted a podcast during law school which followed and explained Supreme Court opinions. It is no surprise that she named her two dogs after Supreme Court justices: Harlan (for John Marshall Harlan I) and Elena (for Elena Kagan).
