An essential part of our department’s success comes from our advisory board. We would like to welcome the two newest members of our advisory board, Rashida Hodge and Juli Trexler. Coincidentally, they come to us from IBM and, not so coincidentally, both are NC State Industrial and Systems Engineering Alumni.
Prior to her current role, Rashida held numerous leadership roles across IBM where she was core to establishing sustainable business operations and end to end client and partner success.
Rashida has a Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering in Industrial Engineering, from North Carolina State University and holds an MBA from Duke University. She is the founder of the NC State College of Engineering Foundation Real Hope for Next Gen Engineers Endowed Scholarship.
Rashida is originally from St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands and has a passion for mentoring and giving back to her community.
Trexler has a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from North Carolina State University, is a Certified Project Management Professional, and a Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.
