A few questions for Marsha --

Marsha Riibner-CadyWhat HAS your career path lookED like, and where are you today?

I attended Drury College in Springfield, Missouri and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and minor in Chemistry. My career began in Baltimore, Maryland at The Johns Hopkins Hospital Blood Bank as a Medical Technologist. From there I sold laboratory equipment in Boston where I met and married Lyle Cady in 1989 on Grand Cayman, BWI. Mitchell and Roland were born which began my career as a stay-at-home mom. Then I moved onto various “mommy friendly jobs” and volunteering for the Boy Scouts. In 1999 I was named Boy Scout volunteer of the year for the Shenandoah Area Council.

Our family moved to Manteo, North Carolina in 2004. In 2006 I became the membership specialist for the Girl Scouts. I received several awards – including volunteer of the year for Manteo Middle School and NC Governors Medallion Award for managing volunteers. I also worked as the Director of the 5 After-School Enrichment Programs in our county and completed my certificate in Early Childhood Education.

Cady CPR SolutionsCOVID hit. In September 2020 I started my own business, Cady CPR Solutions, a CPR and First Aid Training company. I also serve on several “children associated” boards in Dare County, NC.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling to my cabin in West Virginia, seeing plays in New York City, walking our Rottweilers, Astoria and Indie and sometimes the grand puppy Annie (corgi). Lyle and I enjoy going to the movies on the weekend and I like to be outside doing yard work.

What has being involved in NFBPWC meant for your career?

I have always referred to NFBPWC as Big Girl, Girl Scouts. NFBPWC is a support system I had when I started my own business during a global pandemic. Without the support of the members, the Mentoring and Health Committees, I wouldn't have been able to do what I needed to do to get Cady CPR Solutions started.

In the process of starting my own business, I was introduced to a member who needed an administrative assistant. I am running my own business and I'm also helping someone else with their business! Women helping women succeed is what NFBPWC is all about.

What's your Call to Action for our readers? 

I would like my BPW sisters to look at Cady CPR Solutions as your resource for CPR and First Aid training and AEDs. Visit my website for more information about my in-person and online training: www.cadycprsolutions.com.
