Since acquiring my license in 1989 I have traveled to Olympia numerous times as a subject matter expert to help the Board of Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors (BOR) write and evaluate the Professional Land Surveying exam. This entailed actually taking the PLS exam in order to evaluate the questions for ambiguities and relevance. In addition to this, I was appointed to a 30-member team of subject matter experts from across the United States. This team traveled to Clemson, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia to take, evaluate and determine the minimum passing score of the National Professional Land Surveyors exam
administered by the National Council of Examiners for Surveying.
I have had articles published in professional journals and have given seminars on various surveying topics.
In 2007 I was asked to be a beta test member for the Certified Federal Surveying (CFedS) program. After obtaining my federal certification I was the first to perform a survey, Land Description Review (LDR) and Chain of Surveys (COS) certifications in Washington state and the first to perform a Federal Authority survey in Washington State.
From February 2000 to February 2001 I was the President of the Land Surveyor’s Association for the State of Washington.
I served as the NSPS Governor and Director for Washington State and the BOR liaison for the State of Washington.
I am currently serving on the Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors.
