Nicole Reilly, DiPrete Engineering
Nicole Reilly joined DiPrete Engineering in 2006 after gaining valuable experience in the public sector from the town of Narragansett. Growing up, Reilly always loved her science and math classes, two passions that eventually earned her a bachelor’s degree from Boston University and later a Master’s Degree from the University of Rhode Island.
In 2017, she was promoted to the firm’s first female vice president.
“Nicole is exceptional,” said Dennis DiPrete, president of DiPrete Engineering. “Our firm trusts her with our most sophisticated and demanding clients, and the clients trust her with their important projects.”
Over the past decade, Reilly has successfully managed some of the firm’s biggest design and permitting projects in Rhode Island. With 17 years’ of engineering experience, she excels at keeping all of a project’s moving parts on track when working with large multidiscipline teams.
“I like getting handed new challenges at work and always try my best to pair myself with teammates of opposing strengths so we can balance each other out and hopefully accomplish the impossible together,” says Reilly.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and being involved in dog rescue work through Save-A-Lab Rescue, an organization that is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of displaced Labrador retrievers and Labrador retriever mixes.
