Before joining Spirit, Scott previously served as a full-time onsite consultant for a large refinery, providing day-to-day air quality support. He currently serves as a client manager and team leader providing air quality consulting support to a variety of industries, such as oil and gas production, processing and transmission, refining, chemicals, manufacturing, energy, and publishing. Scott has experience with air permitting in 12 states, with a large portfolio of accomplished projects.
