Tracy LaFlamme Ortega
Chief Product Officer
Tracy LaFlamme Ortega is the Chief Product Officer at ECS Learning Systems, and the founder of PREPWORKS®, a multi-award winning platform for computer adaptive learning. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, Tracy began her career in education more than twenty-five years ago as a high school teacher. In May 2018, PREPWORKS® was acquired by ECS, and today Tracy leads our team of instructional designers, editors, content engineers, programmers, and subject matter experts, who together develop the company’s print and digital products.
Firmly believing that today’s technology must serve as the great equalizer in education, Tracy began by focusing on the outliers to create a content library aimed to increase the academic performance of the most challenged test-takers seeking competency to the most competitive test-takers seeking near perfect scores. Employing a unique and highly iterative process for both courseware and software development, the company’s proven methodologies, learning techniques, and proprietary Learning Positioning System® technology are seamlessly translated into an e-learning platform that today is used by students and teachers across 47 states and 68 countries.
Tracy is an active member of the Woman’s President Organization (WPO), a Director on the National Board of the Association of Latino Professionals for America (ALPFA), a member of Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and the mother of three young women.
