If you’re looking for fashion inspiration, must-visit Pittsburgh places, or book recommendations, Hope Perri is your gal. When she’s not spending time with her family—including her two adorable nephews—or supporting students at the University of Pittsburgh, Hope is filling her role as an Account Manager at Cosmitto.
She grew up in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh and attended the University of Pittsburgh for Marketing and International Business. Unlike many college students, Hope knew she wanted to pursue this field from the start. Prior to working at Cosmitto, Hope worked in sales for Yelp in Chicago, Illinois.
