Emily Porcelli is a proud Chicagoland native but has resided on the East Coast since 2010. She has a Bachelor’s degree from Valparaiso University in Northwest Indiana and a Master’s degree from Seton Hall University in New Jersey. Working everywhere from PetSmart to the Newark Museum to Manhattan skyscrapers Emily still hasn’t decided what she wants to be when she grows up but is loving that the journey has taken her to Faces & Voices of Recovery. She has 5 years of development and events experience with nonprofits in New York City and Philadelphia, and she believes people live their best lives when they are kind and humane to one another and tries to live every day by those principals.
Emily currently lives in Philadelphia with her wife and their rescue cocker spaniel Bea Arthur. She enjoys traveling, hiking, cooking, American History, and quilting, and her mother claims that Emily may very well be the reincarnation of Betsy Ross.
