She worked for a local drywall sub-contractor for 3 years, when she was laid off by this employer she was lucky enough to be hired by the then up and coming Casper Company in 1991. She has held nearly every office position in the company and overseeing the traditional office staff as CFO/Controller, and Operations Manager. However the greatest honor she has had with Casper was in 2008 when she was given the chance to become an owner in the company.
Her passion is her family. She comes from a family of 10, where she is the second to the youngest. But her greatest love is her husband Steve of 20 years and their children, Gabriel who is 26 and Theresa who is 19.

Mary Roscoe, Corresponding Secretary
Mary Roscoe is the Senior Business Development Manager for Symmons Industries.
She began in the construction industry in 1980 with A.O. Reed & Company. She was the purchasing and estimating assistant for 3 years and at that point had no idea what she wanted to “be” when she grew up! During this time at A.O. Reed – she met and married Bob, her husband of now 35 years! They have 3 children, Brenden is their son 34; Taryn is their daughter 33; and Justin is their son 31.
She took some time off when they were very young and then started at Liberty Equipment and Supply in 1986 and went into outside sales for the flexibility it provided to a young mother and wife. She still didn’t know what she would “be” when she grew up. She worked her way up to “Branch Manager” and then shortly thereafter Liberty was purchased by Ferguson. She then accepted a job with a plumbing drain manufacturer Josam and was there for a couple of years – Ferguson talked her into coming aboard as a Branch Manager and she soon realized this wasn’t what she wanted to “be” as a grown up!
She then accepted a position with Mega Western, a “Manufacturer rep. agency” and learned about faucets and shower valves among other products – with this knowledge she accepted a position nearly 10 years ago with Symmons – she finally now realize this is “where and what” she wants to be as a grown up!
She now has 7 grandchildren; 4 from Brenden and Danielle, Mikayla 13, Brennalyn 8, Giyanna 5 and Bryden 2. Taryn and Patrick have blessed her with 2 granddaughters Camryn 3 and Aubrey 1 and Justin and Alyssa have blessed her with another granddaughter Olivia born in September of 2016.
Her NAWIC journey started at Liberty Equipment but she didn’t appreciate all that NAWIC had to offer at that point in her career. Thinking back she now believes she was too busy with babies, school and running a household to entertain what the NAWIC opportunity could offer not only in her career but in her life path. She is blessed to have given this wonderful group another opportunity to join, learn, grow and support. As with NAWIC you will only get out of it what you put into it. There are lessons to be learned, friends to be made and opportunities to be had! She is proud to be associated with such a fine organization of professional women!
She also belongs to and holds board member positions with ASPE – American Society of Plumbing Engineers and the BIA – Building Industry of America, San Diego chapters.
In her spare time she loves the river, riding on the Harley, hiking, and being outside with her grandbabies!
