Elizabeth Torrez

Currently located: Pasadena, California

Job title: Enterprise Account Executive with Tenna

NAWIC Position title: No position at this time - just a member!

Tell us a little bit about your career and current position.
I spent 11 years working in construction in the sewer, water and storm drain arena performing various roles. From there I moved to United Rentals Trench Safety for almost four years and have now moved to Tenna where the experience of the past 15 years allows me to relate to and understand my clients needs having lived in their shoes.

How long have you been a NAWIC member, and how did you learn about NAWIC?
I've been a member of NAWIC with Tenna since November but was a member previously with United Rentals Trench Safety for 4 years.

How has NAWIC helped you in your career?
The relationships I have gained through NAWIC empower me to want to be in a part of this industry understanding the significance in the role we play to our future.

What is the best part about being a NAWIC member?
The collaboration of women who want to help one another succeed.

Why do you consider NAWIC to be a great organization?
In a world where we are outnumbered, this association allows you to realize there is a place and a career for you in an industry most people don't associate with women.

Congratulations to Elizabeth for being recognized as part of our Best Person for The Job feature series. And thank you for joining NAWIC! If you know of a NAWIC member that deserves to be recognized, contact us today.
Stay tuned for more NAWIC features, published monthly.
