- Cara Martin from North American RoofingFirst year member of NWiR and have already connected with so many amazing and empowering women. Landed in the industry back in 2017 when I took on an administrative role with a residential roofing company. In October of 2018 I was welcomed by the team at North American Roofing Services. Having been with the company for 5 years now, I take pride in my role as Sales Support Manager, especially in the ways I’ve continued to grow professionally. A strong advocate for promoting positive mental health and aspire to be a contributor to thriving culture within NARS. I look forward to continually becoming more involved with NWiR and perhaps eventually becoming a mentor to others in the future.

- Nadine Moffatt from Marine Roofing
I am the Health and Safety Manager for the Marine Roofing Group of Companies. A group of companies that cover everything roofing related from our repair and service company, roofing and our architectural sheet metal and cladding company. I have worked in the roofing trade since the mid 90’s, the company I started working at hired me as the first female to work in the field, this proved to provide a lot of challenges but with perseverance and a lot of hard work, in 2002 I became a red seal journeyman in roofing waterproofing and damproofing, one of the very few females at that time to acquire the ticket. I made a transition over to the safety side of the business and that is where I found my niche, supporting fellow workers not just safety wise but building the relationships that help foster a positive work environment. I have been very honored to have encouraged and mentored many females to get into the trades. Some who now have managerial roles for themselves.
