Emily comes to Tripepi Smith with eight years of communications experience, including a mixture of public relations, marketing and innovative digital strategies. She has worked in the non-profit, private and public sector, including several years serving in a community relations capacity with the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA).

“I am excited to bring my copywriting, creative and digital strategy skills to the table to help Tripepi Smith clients improve their communication and engagement with their communities,” said Emily. “During this challenging time, many people are looking to their local government bodies for guidance and hope, and I feel very humbled to have the opportunity to be a part of helping our clients with this.”
Emily thrives on collaborating with cross-functional teams to explore innovative and creative storytelling opportunities to navigate complex challenges and increase organizational reputation. This includes a wide variety of content creation, from crafting press releases and print collateral, to developing videos and implementing social media and influencer campaigns.
“I have known Emily for a number of years and have seen her skills and experience continually grow and develop. Her dynamic skillsets and unique way of looking at opportunities and challenges will be an asset to both our team and clients,” stated Ryder Todd Smith, president of Tripepi Smith. “Her timely arrival could not be better as many public agencies are turning to our firm for help with communications to address the public’s concerns over coronavirus. We have experienced tremendous growth, and we are fortunate to have built capacity in our team to take on the greatest challenge our generation has seen.”
Emily holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from California State University, Fullerton with a focus in public relations and a minor in business administration, and achieved and maintains Accreditation in Public Relations through the Public Relations Society of America.
