Andrea Velez is a native to Erie, PA and an Edinboro University two time graduate. Andrea earned her degree in Communication Studies in 2013, after which her hunger for higher education led her to the School of Graduate Studies and Research where she earned her Master of Arts Degree in Communication Studies with two program emphases in Integrated Marketing Communication (IMC) and Managerial & Leadership Communication. In addition to her studies, Andrea simultaneously fulfilled two part time graduate assistantships in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences and the College of Science & Health Professions. She also established a passion for photography and videography, which ultimately led her to a career in marketing.
Andrea joined the Epic team in 2015 as a Social Media Strategist. As a life-long learner, Andrea is passionate about communication research and discovering innovative ways to enhance connections and relationships among people and what they most love. Through strategic planning, creativity and learning, of course, Andrea strives to give each client at Epic Web the upper hand in reaching their full potential with digital marketing.
When Andrea is not hard at work, she is busy being “super aunt” to her young niece and two nephews. She loves to play dress up, build forts, craft; and take them to Waldameer, the Erie Zoo, and Presque Isle. We’ve also figured out that Andrea is pretty funny, and has quickly become a source for positive energy around the office. If you’re having a rough day, just go hang with Andrea and you will be cheered up in no time. Seriously, this woman is always smiling!
