Emily Zangari

Social Media Manager

North Dakota transplant, but a lover of all things New England. Adopted into the Husky family after years in professional hockey social. When I’m not glued to my phone, you can find me watching football (#Skol!), hiking with my pup, or on the hunt for the best Mexican food on the east coast.

Hey there! My name is Neel and I'm social media content producer for University Communications of UConn. I have a keen fascination with all things visual- so it's not a surprise that you'll catch me on either Instagram or Youtube. I have a passion for video production and have worked within the multimedia field for the past five years. I'm always trying to innovate and find a new way to catch the eye of the audience. I will be graduating with a B.A. in Communications and Journalism in the Spring of 2019.
