How long have you been a part of FPRA? Why did you join?
In 2006, I joined FPRA as a student member while pursuing my bachelor’s degree in advertising-public relations at the University of Central Florida. Through my involvement with Quotes, I was fortunate to expand my professional network and learn best practices in PR. This still holds true today and that’s why I continue to be a member.
What was your favorite FPRA event?
Image Awards, because it’s a great opportunity to celebrate all of the talented PR professionals that work in Central Florida.
Tell us about an exciting achievement (personal or professional).
The completion of my master’s degree, which I earned in May! I somehow managed to juggle my full-time job with school all while learning how to be a new mom. It’s been one of the hardest things I have ever done but was completely worth every exhausting minute.
