Judaline Cassidy was born in Trinidad and Tobago, where she began her career at John Donaldson Technical of Trinidad. She was one of the first three women selected to pursue plumbing at the Institution, which is now known as the University of Trinidad and Tobago. Judaline has been a proud member of Plumbers Local Union No. 1 of New York City for the past 20 years and was one of the first women accepted into Plumbers Local Union No. 371 in Staten Island, New York. Judaline was also one of the first women elected onto the Examining Board of Plumbers Local Union No. 1. Currently, Judaline serves on the Advisory Committee of the soon-to-be-constructed Women’s Building of New York. She’s also one of the core team members of the nonprofit Girls That Build, an organization that encourages and mentors girls who are interested in the plumbing trade. Judaline is determined to create a positive experience for women in the industry so that the obstacles she encountered can be eliminated for future female plumbers.
