Star Surveying has been owned by Robert M Anderson since 2007. A licensed land surveyor since 1981, Bob began his career in the 1970’s on Orcas Island when the firm operated under the leadership of Krabbe & Starr. In 1987, he accepted a position in Seattle specializing in government surveying and mapping projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. In 1999, Bob received an appointment from the United Nations to be the technical advisor in Bhutan for the National Urban Surveying & Mapping Group. After 5 years mapping the Himalayas, Bob returned to the San Juan Islands and assumed the position of Chief Surveyor for Star Surveying, purchasing the firm in 2007.

In April, Star Surveying welcomed Kimberly Bourns, a Professional Land Surveyor with over 20 years of surveying education and experience to join the firm as Co-Owner and Senior Surveyor. Kim studied at Oregon Institute of Technology and Renton Technical College where she earned her A.A.S. degree in Civil Engineering/Survey Technology. An experienced Project Surveyor, Kim has worked on projects such as the Northgate Link Light Rail Extension to extend 4.3 miles of tunnels and rails and the Alderwood Water District where she established the survey control plan and provided detailed mapping for over 41 individual locations throughout the district.

Bob and Kim, along with a team of Star’s survey professionals are looking ahead at ways to invest in our company’s future and to support women in the trades
