Scott Boorman

Scott Boorman grew up on a farm outside of Rocky Mountain House and have known for a long time that I wanted to have a career that allowed me to be outside and occasionally get my hands dirty. I obtained my B.Sc. in Environmental and Conservation Sciences with a major in Land Reclamation and Remediation from the University of Alberta in 2003. My work experience started with two years at Syncrude Canada as a Reclamation assistant and I have been working at Paragon Soil and Environmental Consulting since 2005.I specialize in pre disturbance soil survey for industrial projects. Further, I have extensive experience in soil handling oversight, salvage through to reclamation, pipeline construction monitoring, mineable oil sands projects and project management. I have also managed multiple soil reclamation audits and soil surveys on coal mines in the Rocky Mountains. In addition to soils work, I coordinated Paragon’s safety program for six years and my background in safety lends itself well to the coordination and management of field activities. I currently live in Spruce Grove with my wife and two sons. When I am not at work I enjoy travelling, camping, hiking, mountain biking and cross country skiing with my family and friends.
