I’m an active member of PRowl, and was just recently hired as an Owl Team Leader for the upcoming summer!

Why do you love PRSSA?

Being apart of PRSSA has been such a blessing – everyone has been so kind, I’ve met the nicest people, and have learned so much! Also, major shout out to my mentor Maria! She’s the bee’s knees!

What’s your dream job?

Overall, I just hope to do PR for the greater good. I want to take advantage of any opportunity that comes my way. But, as far as a dream job… I’ll let you know when I think of one!

Favorite Social Media Platform?

Instagram! A picture is worth a thousand words.

What’s the coolest place you’ve ever traveled to? 

A few years ago I was given the opportunity to visit Zurich, Switzerland. Hiking up the Swiss Alps for 3 miles allowed me to have my Marie Von Trapp moment – the hills were indeed alive.
