Bixby, OK — Brooke Laizure has been elected as a 2022 board member for ORCA, the Oklahoma Roofing Contractors Association. It is a non-profit organization created to promote, train, and educate members and consumers on best practices for the roofing industry in the State of Oklahoma.
Laizure is the co-owner of Whirlwind Roofing & Construction, a local family-owned father-daughter roofing contractor based in Bixby, Oklahoma. The company specializes in residential roofing and construction, storm restoration, and custom copper accents.
“The roofing industry has undergone many changes the past few years. As roofing contractors, we need to be constantly changing our businesses to align with best practices to educate and protect homeowners. I am excited to be a part of ORCA to advance those practices and to elevate the industry to a new level,” says Laizure.
As a Founding Member of National Women in Roofing, she has served locally as chairperson, vice-chairperson, and community chairperson of the NWiR Oklahoma Chapter and has been featured nationally in Roofing Contractor magazine. She is passionate about education within her own company and the roofing industry, including mentoring high school students to consider the trades as a profession through the Build My Future construction career event in Oklahoma City, OK.
She says, “I love watching kids that have never held a hammer learn how to shingle a roof. I enjoy talking to them about all the amazing career opportunities open to them, including being an entrepreneur.”
