Kenneth Yazel, RPLS #6182 - Chapter 2 (North Central Texas)


TSPS: How/why did you get into surveying?

Kenneth: My step mom owns a Land Title Insurance Company in Tulsa and was able to use her influence to get me a summer job as a teenager with a Tulsa Land Surveying firm. When I went back to school at the University of North Texas (go mean green) at some point I decided that Land Surveying and my pursuit of a Geography Degree would go very well together. I was able to get work experience while getting my degree in Denton with a couple of local surveying companies. 

TSPS: Why did you join TSPS?

Kenneth: I got laid off in 2007 and was able to quickly find a job through the classifieds in TSPS’s Texas Surveyor publication. I have been a thankful active member since then. I’ve enjoyed building my professional network, learning more about Land Surveying, and keeping current on issues affecting our profession.

TSPS: What is your most memorable surveying moment?

Kenneth: The most memorable surveying moment is the day (June 18, 2014) that my good friend, Jeffrey Peebles, and I opened our Land Surveying Company for business. God has blessed us with multiple great clients, 12 wonderful employees, and plenty of work. I am looking forward to continuing to grow the company and see where we end up going forward.

 

Kenneth's Favorites:

Color: Mean Green

Food: Barbeque

Animal: Hippopotamus

Singer/band/group: Norah Jones

Hobby: Going to sporting events with my lovely wife

Kenneth currently serves as 1st Vice President for TSPS Chapter 2 - North Central Texas and is the President of Yazel Peebles & Associates LLC in Bedford, TX.
