Why do you love PRSSA? What do you hope to get out of it?

I love PRSSA because it shows me how many ways there are to get involved in PR and the communications field in general. I hope to continue to make new friends and to find an internship through my new network.

What is one of your favorite PRSSA events you’ve participated in?

While I’ve attened general meetings, workshops, and guest speaker presentations, I would say the Brunch Fundraiser last Spring. (Chicken, waffles, and PR? Yes!)

Dream Job?

I’m not sure yet! I’m a legal assistant, so law school is a thought. But, doing PR for anyone on Foodnetwork would make my life complete.

Favorite social media platform?

Facebook. It’s not dying, right?

Coolest place you’ve ever traveled to?

Los Angeles for the premiere of a children’s musical that I was in: Standing Ovation. (Fun Fact: We’re on Netflix and On Demand!)
