How did you get your start in PR?
I was originally a business major in college, but I took a class on PR and loved the subject (and my teacher) right away. After that, I changed my major to journalism with an emphasis in PR. My college professors were great and encouraging, which made it an easy decision. Plus, I love talking to people and learning about technology, making it a way better fit for me!
