EmPower Spotlight: Natalie Hotchkiss

Natalie has worked for EmPower remotely while finishing her degree in public relations from Gonzaga University for nearly two years. She manages day-to-day social media and marketing, provides public relations work when needed, and utilizes her design skills to make graphics for our nursing team!

How long have you worked at EmPower? 

About 2 years in March. I took one semester off (fall 2017) to complete another internship for school, but I was hired in March of 2016!

What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t at work? 

Binge-watch whatever show I’m currently on (right now I’m in the middle of Suits), try new restaurants, or go to a barre class.

What do you love about your job? 

I love that I have the flexibility to work in Portland or at school. My job gives me a lot of opportunity to work with every department at the company and try new things constantly.

Where can you be found on a Friday night? 

Hanging out with my friends at the local bars near campus or at home watching a movie with my boyfriend!

Where is somewhere you’ve always wanted to but never had the chance? 

Greece! I studied abroad in Fall 2016 and that was one place on my list I never got the opportunity to visit.

You have a week off from work and other responsibilities…where would we find you? 

If it’s summertime, definitely reading by the pool. If it’s winter…probably sitting by the fireplace browsing Anthropologie’s website (I have an obsession with their mugs and candles).

Coke or Pepsi? 

Diet Coke.
