Kellie Armstrong


What is your position within your company?
I am commercial estimator and project manager for Independent Roofing Co., Omaha, Neb.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
My first roofing industry job involved transferring data into Independent Roofing's new accounting system for what was supposed to be two months. I decided to stay because of the opportunity for growth and the great people I work with every day.

What was your first roofing experience?
My first roofing experience involved watching men climb a 40-foot ladder that was swaying back and forth. I told myself I had no time to be scared before I attempted the same, and I've been on roofs almost daily ever since.
