How has PRSSA enhanced your knowledge of PR/ future career options?

PRSSA hasn’t just opened doors for me; it’s opened floodgates. I’ve

learned a ton in my classes, but PRSSA is what truly made me

understand the industry. The main reason I know people who work in PR

is because I met them through PRSSA/PRSA.

Briefly, what are you looking forward to working on as the current

president of National Committee?

I’m excited to increase our Society’s outreach to high schoolers.

I find lots of members had no idea what PR was when they were

in high school (myself included), and I think educating teens on PR

as a career option is wise for our industry and our Society.

Your go-to interview outfit:

My black dress and pink blazer

#1 pro-tip for interviews:

Come with insightful questions. It’ll help you stand out from

the competition by showing your thoughtfulness and true interest.

The PR/communications field can be stressful. What’s your favorite way

to relieve stress?

Painting, crafting and/or getting a massage

Favorite ice cream flavor?
