How did you get into the PR industry?
I attended Boston University and majored in Communications, specializing in Public Relations. My first job was at Weber Shandwick, where I largely worked within a media relations speciality practice focused in executive thought leadership and then transferred to the Travel and Lifestyle group. I’ve been at WW (formerly Weight Watchers) for four years.
What is your favorite PR experience?
While I have made a lot of wonderful memories over the years, being named one of PRSA-NY's "Exceptionals Under 35" in 2019 was an experience I will never forget. To be recognized amongst such a strong group of PR professionals as someone changing the landscape of the PR industry was truly unforgettable.
What do you love about PR?
The PR industry is ever-changing and can be incredibly fast-paced, which makes every day an adventure.
