Emily Occhipinti is a third-generation Oregonian. Passionate about storytelling, Emily spends her days working in digital content. After graduating from Northwestern University in 2010 with a degree in Communication Studies and English, she went to work as a copywriter for an e-commerce company. Bitten by the marketing bug, Emily later took over as the Marketing and Content Manager for a digital marketing agency where she was in charge of developing the agency’s content initiatives and directing communication strategies. She currently runs marketing and community outreach for Epicodus, a code school based in downtown Portland.
A life-long learner, Emily recently completed a Masters degree in Strategic Communication from the University of Oregon.
When she's not at work you can find Emily teaching herself how to code, browsing the indie magazine section at Powell's, or contemplating her next meal at one of Portland's incredible restaurants.
