Favorite part of PRSSA: PRSSA has been an amazing extension of my education that has helped me learn about the industry, broadened my professional network and helped me make many new friends!

A favorite quote: “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t- you’re right.” -Henry Ford
Your favorite restaurant in Philadelphia? The Continental Midtown. Their cheesesteak eggrolls are to die for!
What’s something you would like to accomplish before graduating? My dream had always been to study abroad at some point during college; I was lucky enough to get to do that in London during the spring 2014 semester.
Dream travel destination? I’d love to take a long tour of Italy and visit Florence, Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? I hope to be working in a position I love at a PR or digital marketing agency and possibly have a MBA. I love the city so I hope to remain in or outside of a major city like Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Chicago or Washington D.C.
