Home Chapter: Greater Cleveland (PRSA CLE)

What is your favorite part about being part of PRSA (National, District and Chapter levels)?

Interacting with public relations/communications colleagues and learning new skills/technics.

What do you hope to contribute to PRSA-ECD in 2020?

To help expand the awareness of the District and national news/information to the chapters, and to help facilitate interaction between chapters.

What is your favorite part of public relations (and other related communications industries)?

The constant ebb-and-flow of work and project; the satisfaction of successful campaigns for clients; the type of people we get to work with regularly.

Talk about your career. What have been some highlights and missteps, and what have you learned from them?

Created successful campaigns & projects from nothing in regards to history and/or budgets; garnering national press on projects; leading the efforts of earning four unique Guinness World Records; and many, many crisis communications efforts. To me, ‘missteps’ are learning experiences, but one regret is remaining in one position for a very long length of time and not expanding to new opportunities.

What would you say to a prospective member who wants to join PRSA but is on the fence?

The networking and learning opportunities are invaluable to our career.

What do you like most about QuickStart, the Diamond Awards and/or other PRSA-ECD initiatives?

QuickStart provides the opportunity to network with other Chapter/District leadership, learn new things and confirm that some challenges/issues are universal within the organization.

Would you like to add anything else?

Network, network, network….
