Description of business, organization, inventionPitch

A relatively large Land Survey only firm, (no civil engineers) unique in the industry, we are an employee owned company where each of the 10 partners owns equal shares.

Evergreen helped prepare me for my professional life in the following way

At Evergreen I began to develop an understanding of relativism and the idea of relative truths. I think this helps me enormously in dealing with the ambiguities and anomalies involved in interpreting property descriptions and in understanding the legal aspects of property "ownership" which is really only a bundle of rights that can be defined in as many ways as one can imagine.

At Evergreen I learned how to learn independently and this definitely helped when it came time to study for the exam for licensure as a Land Surveyor.
