Nicole Ortiz


Nicole, 27, is an Industrial Engineer who uses forecasting and statistical tools to solve inventory and customer order challenges. She is also pursuing her graduate degree in Industrial Engineering and is studying the commonalities in the genetic signatures and pathways among three neurological disorders. But perhaps her proudest achievement is through her work with the Hewlett Packard mentoring program. Assigned two middle school students in danger of dropping out of school, Nicole worked with them, their teachers, and parents to improve their attendance and get their grades up. Both students graduated and Nicole is a continuing presence in their lives as they start their high school career.
