How long have you been a part of FPRA? Why did you join? #myFPRA
This is my first year in FPRA. I just graduated from UCF back in May with my B.A. in advertising and public relations. During my time as a student, I had the pleasure of serving as the President of Ad Club UCF during my Junior year. My responsibilities included planning and coordinating professional development events for students alongside a board of six awesome individuals. Upon graduating, I wanted to be involved in a professional organization where I could dip my toes into the PR world a little more. Needless to say, FPRA Orlando fit the bill.
Favorite FPRA event:
Media Mashup, no doubt!
Tell us about an exciting achievement.
So far, one of the biggest achievements I’ve had was when I was on the Ad Club UCF board in 2015, and we grew the club’s membership from 19 to 106 members — a 468% increase. The American Advertising Federation awarded us the College Chapter Membership Award for “Largest Growth” in the 2015 school year.

I am a line dancin’ fool! On the weekends, you’ll most likely find me at Cowboys Orlando, scootin’ my boots to everything from Alan Jackson to Big & Rich.
