Jonathan Payne, PLS runs a private surveying consulting firm in Trigg County Kentucky. He has been licensed as a Professional Land Surveyor since June of 2000. His journey to becoming licensed began while working on a BS degree in Civil Engineering Technology and a MS degree in Engineering Technology from Murray State University. This was followed by several years working, in a supervised capacity, for firms in Western Kentucky in areas of boundary, transportation, and subdivision surveys.
After achieving licensure, Jonathan began his own small surveying firm. In private practice, he has concentrated on boundary retracement and subdivision surveys. Having taken a brief break from private practice, Jonathan served as the instructor of record for the surveying courses at Murray State University from August 2013 until May 2017. Back in private practice, Jonathan is pursuing a PhD in Education from the University of Kentucky.
Jonathan has served KAPS in a variety of positions ranging from committee member to President over the past years and present seminars when needed for the organization.
