In February, I packed my rain boots for Seattle, enjoyed the sunshine and salty ocean of Mexico in March, tasted fame in L.A. in September, and explored the amazing history of Spain in October.  Read more

iRobot Roomba 980 Review

For Christmas, my brother-in-law bought himself an iRobot Roomba 980. Priced at $899.00, the autonomous robotic vacuum has wheels and rotating brushes that cleans floors, and, well, lives. Upon seeing it, I was skeptical because I am old-school and like to use sweeping/cleaning as therapy...also, I was raised in a home where cleaning is a rite of passage, so I deeply value the cultural tradition that comes with a clean home. Thus, you can understand my skepticism. However, after seeing it in action I was enthralled and charmed by the little robot cleaner.  Read more

My First Experience With Virtual Reality

I’ve never been into video games or known much about how they work. I’ve seen my little brother become obsessed with games whose names I can’t pronounce, while staying up late just to finish one last battle. With that being said, I wouldn’t call myself a gamer. But after using a virtual reality headset, I can say that I am a bit obsessed with this new world -- so much that it compelled me to write about my experience.

Useful Google Chrome extensions for all of your Web browsing needs!

Google Chrome is my default browser for all of my devices, including my MacBook Air, Chromebook, and Galaxy Note 5, for several reasons. I absolutely love that I can retrieve bookmarks, tabs, and even my browsing history for any of these devices anywhere. It’s definitely the first app I install on any new device, and one that I use every single day.

Another reason why I love using Google Chrome, specifically on my MacBook Air, is the fact that I can add extensions to my browser. The options are endless -- from add-ons that let me quickly check the number of new emails to instant coupon finders, extensions help make sure that you’re being the most productive while surfing the Web. You can find a full list of extensions on the Chrome Web Store, and below are a few extensions that I use every day.

How did you get your start in PR?
I majored in journalism in college, and while I loved it, I quickly realized I like talking way too much to limit myself to just writing. Working in PR gives me the best of both worlds -- I get to write, and I get to communicate with my awesome clients and rockstar coworkers everyday!

What’s your latest/favorite hit so far?
One of the recent hits I’m really excited about was securing a slot for Pebble in O Magazine’s spring trends issue! It was really neat to see Pebble featured in print among several other exciting brands.

What’s a top tip you’d offer to someone aspiring to become a PR rockstar?
Always put yourself in your client’s shoes. Just like any other relationship, empathy is key to fostering a strong and healthy partnership with your client. Understanding their world -- their preferences and requirements -- makes it much easier to share clear recommendations and find new and exciting opportunities for them. At the end of the day, you’ll secure better results, and your client will put more trust in you!
