Name your top three favorite things about PR.
My top favorite things about PR are:
- The people – my colleagues and clients that I get to work with on a daily basis.
- The always changing nature of the business; not one day is the same.
- The work hard play hard culture of agency life.
Do you have a childhood moment when everyone knew you’d be a communications specialist?
Well, when I was five years old I won the “Miss Mini Heritage Days” pageant in my hometown of Salem, MA. I had to get up on stage, tell the audience about myself and answer questions from the judges. Based on that I always thought I wanted to be TV anchor, specifically for sports, but I guess I fell into place with PR!
What is your top getaway destination?
Clearwater Beach, FL. It’s been my family’s vacation spot for as long as I can remember. Nothing better than relaxing on the beach!
If you could take a client to any restaurant in Boston where would you go?
Hmmm that’s a tough one, I could give recommendations for each type of food! But I would say my favorite restaurant to take a client to would be Del Frisco’s in the Seaport.
