What are the requirements to be a Surveyor in your area: Years of experience, an Associates degree. Pass the FS exam, the PS exam and the TSSE exam,
How long have you been in the industry? 14 years
How did you get into surveying? I needed a job and I ended up really loving it so I stayed.
Any associations and organisations you’d like to mention: I am apart of TSPS Chapter 5. I am a 2 year director at the moment.
Why are you volunteering as a Brand Ambassador? I am volunteering because there is nowhere near enough exposure to Surveying for kids to see. Other than seeing it live out in their communities.
Why is GKiS important? I really want to help the younger generation learn about surveying and why it is an essential career for America. It’s a timeless career and we need more Surveyors now more then ever.
What are your plans as a Brand Ambassador: I would like do events, presentations and hands on activities in the local communities, such as schools, Public Libraries or/and Town Hall.
What are your hobbies outside of work? My family are my hobbies. I put all my extra time to them and my faith
If you could have a GKiS character what would it be: I’m not sure. Maybe a person with a cowboy hat looking through an instrument or looking at an ancient document.
GKiS resources that you’d like to see: Some type of kid hands on experience. Maybe that’s scanning a person so they can take that data home for the computer. We have so many cool toys, I’m sure we can figure something out.
Anything else you’d like to mention? The career is a solid career. it pays well and pays really well in certain areas. There is more opportunity in Surveying to own your own Business as well.
