About ORA

ORA is Women Powered

As the second generation to oversee Otto Rosenau & Associates, Inc. (ORA), Judi Rosenau-Payseno and Susan Rosenau-Moser continue the company’s legacy of technical excellence and responsive service.

The dedication to family has been a long and continuing culture of ORA that started when Judi and Susan were children. They accompanied their father, Otto Rosenau, shadowing him in the materials testing lab and on jobsite visits. Otto’s mentoring paid off and Judi and Susan officially joined the family business shortly after graduating from high school.

They have served as President and Vice President of ORA since 1993, each bringing a lifetime of experience to the construction inspection industry. Under their leadership, the company has continued to excel to the highest levels of professionalism and integrity in the industry.

Hands On Leadership

Judi and Susan are actively involved in the day-to-day operations and are responsible for providing vision and strategic direction for the company, maintaining and reinforcing the strong family values and culture by leading their employees to meet and exceed their goals and objectives. Judi is also a committee member of Northwest Council of Engineering Labs (NWCEL), and she serves as a representative on the WABO Special Inspection Registration Advisory Board.

Through their commitment to excellence and dedication to professionalism, Judi and Susan have continued to exceed industry standards by forming strong professional relationships based on integrity, ingenuity, and reliability.
