Our Executive Board
Meet the DePaul PRSSA 2020-2021 executive board!
Astrological Sign: Taurus
Why did you join PRSSA?: To become more connected with my like-minded peers. I wanted to get to know the field of public relations better and all that it has to offer. I also enjoyed knowing that there was a space to come to when I needed to de-stress, talk to a friend, or have fun!
VP of Communication
Major: Public Relations & Advertising, Minor in Spanish
Astrological Sign: Virgo
Why did you join PRSSA?: I joined PRSSA after realizing I had no idea what I was going to do with a public relations degree. Being a freshman, I told myself I had some time to try to discover what I wanted to do with my degree. I heard about the great opportunities and experiences this organization can give a student and I decided to give it a chance. I am really glad I did because now I am starting to get an idea of what I would like to do with my career. And I always know that if I have questions about something or need resources I can always count on PRSSA!
VP of Events
Hometown: NYC, but currently living in LA
Major: Public Relations/Advertising and Journalism
Astrological Sign: Pisces
Why did you join PRSSA?: I joined PRSSA because I wanted to get to know the community behind my newfound major at the time. I became a public relations and advertising major over the summer of 2020 after completing PR Council's Agency-Ready Certificate. With being in California and beginning my PRAD classes online, I thought DePaul PRSSA was a great way to get to know my peers beyond the classroom setting. I also wanted to continue hearing from amazing speakers within the industry like I did with the PR Council and have the opportunity to network with them.
VP of Membership
Why did you join PRSSA?: I found PRSSA at the beginning of my freshman year and thought it was so interesting. I had never heard of PR and really was unsure what it meant, but after going to one event I changed my major. Meeting so many awesome and motivated people fit really well with my personality and I haven't looked back since.
