The Oregon Surveyor


Vol. 40, No. 2


A Young Surveyor’s Testimonial,


contributed to becoming lackadaisical, because my

identity wasn’t attached to the outcome in any way

(except internally to the office). Now, my name is going

to be attached, and there’s no one higher up or lower

to shift blame or responsibility. I get to take responsi-

bility for my work, for my education, and for my role

in the public as well as the professional surveying

community. I have the power to make decisions on

what type of projects to accept and where, and who

I want to work with. So, I am now creating something

of my own, and it is taking on my personality. This is

a long game. It takes patience and dedication, but it

feels more rewarding than anything else that I have

ever done. When it comes down to it, I am where I am

because I’ve worked hard, but also because of all the

family, friends, and colleagues who have helped me

along the way. Here are a few in no particular order:
