Lynne Kelly is a newly licensed surveyor who was recognized by the Board of Professional Land Surveyors of the Department of Labor, Licensing and regulation (DLLR) and MSS at our recent 51st Annual Fall Conference and Exhibition.


Where do you currently work and what is the nature of your surveying practice? 

 

I currently work for Survey Associates with David Green. I work both in the field and in the office. I enjoy collecting the information and bring it back and processing it. 

I've been working in the surveying field for over 30 years. I started right out of college with Greenhorne & O’Mara as a junior party chief in 1986. While working at G&O, I later became a field coordinator which was an incredibly rewarding experience.

 

How did you get into surveying?

I began working in the survey field in 1986. I enjoy working as a surveyor. I liked learning and the flexibility of the job. It was something that I enjoyed doing and decided to make a career in this field.


What led you to become a licensed professional?

I wanted to do more and felt that by getting my license I would be in a position to do so. This business is constantly changing. I wanted to challenge myself and continue to grow.

 

What does becoming licensed mean to you?

It was a great honor to become a licensed surveyor because it took a tremendous amount of hard work. I feel that the license encourages surveyors to not only deepen their commitment to education, but to support the surveying profession by teaching others. I'm glad to be a part of such a unique group of people and I hope to get to know more of you and more about serving as I continue to grow. 


What are your long term career goals?

My long term goal is to obtain my license in another state. This would allow me to see other places while continuing to work at job I love.

 

Who have been your mentors and how have they helped you?

My first mentor was Ed Seigert. I worked with him when I worked at Greenhorne & O’Mara. He taught me many aspects of the surveying business and helped increase my knowledge in the field.

 

Would you recommend a career in surveying to your peers?  Why?

Yes, I would recommend a career in surveying to my peers.  I feel that it is a rewarding job.  I enjoy being able to work both inside and outside. I also like the idea that what we do on a daily basis is always different. No two jobs are the same. One of my favorite tasks is finding property corners.
