Engineering Week Spotlight: Laura Storm

GPI gives the warmest welcome to our newest Engineer, Laura Storm! Laura has a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Wichita State University. Since childhood, she has been obsessed with robots from cartoons and other media…in fact, she would love to work on animatronics! She has always enjoyed tinkering and figuring out how things work, and so it seems natural that in her current position, she designs fixtures and tooling to aid production.

She is very excited to see changes in Engineering demographics:

There’s more female and POC representation in Engineering. As a Latina engineer it fills my heart with joy to see so many Professional & Student societies that inspire young kids from all backgrounds to consider and pursue STEM careers.

Speaking to her own accomplishments within the field, Laura presented an R&D project in front of a panel of industry professionals with over 100 years of combined experience and was commended for how she presented. As many can relate, she has always had a fear of public speaking, and as one of the youngest researchers, it was a very intimidating task, so receiving that positive feedback cemented her sense of belonging in the engineering field.

In her free time, Laura enjoys reading, gardening, arts & crafts like origami, and playing video games with her husband. She loves to travel and enjoys different cultures.

Although Laura has only been at GPI for about 2 months, it seems that she fits right in, as she states about GPI, “I really appreciate the sense of camaraderie and the approach to problem-solving I’ve witnessed so far, and how invested GPI is in the well-being of the workers, be it professionally or heath-wise.” She looks forward to future ambitious projects in GPI’s future, and GPI looks forward to more ambitious projects with Laura. We have enjoyed these two months and look forward to the future with Laura! Thank you for all you do!
