Like most people in land surveying, I actually stumbled across it after going to college for a different career path. I graduated from Oregon State with a degree in Environmental Science with a specialization in remote sensing and GIS. From there I worked for a company providing airborne LiDAR acquisition for a few years and really enjoyed that work but it was a lot of travel (over half the year I’d be out of town). When I looked around to see what I might want to do next, land surveying seemed like a good fit.
