Introduction to other Surveyors. One or more sentence Bio about your Relationship with Surveying
I went to the University of Washington to get a degree in civil engineering (I know there's a joke here somewhere), luckily fate intervened, and I found my way to a 2-year Land Survey Technician degree and a great education at Renton Technical College in Renton, WA.
I couldn't be happier with my career choice...except that I graduated in June 2008, and we all know how rough it's been since then.
I've been very fortunate, however, to remain employed for most of the last 3 years. I just learned that I passed the Fundamentals of Surveying Exam (LSIT) in April 2011, and my goals are to work in the field for 10-15 years, eventually get my license and go from there.
I LOVE MY JOB!

I'm working on a recruitment campaign to educate high school students about career opportunities in Land Surveying. We would love to use this photograph if that's ok with you. Please contact me to discuss when you can. "
"Wow this is what I want to do for my farm dam at home. I need to work out its volume to see if I can do silt management. My dam would only be 3m deep at the deepest part. Did you use extensions for the prism pole and a flat pad for the bottom?"
