Eliza Turney - VP of Fundraising


MEET ELIZA!

Year in school: Senior

Dream job: PR Professional for a Non-Profit organization

How I got involved in PRSSA: Professors talked about it a lot, and so did my classmates. It sounded like a great opportunity and like it would be asset to my career.

Advice to current/future members: Come to the events! Take advantage of what PRSSA is offering you now! There are so many networking opportunities. It is a great way to narrow down what field you want to work in, and meet people in that field.

What I want to accomplish on the Executive Board: I want to raise money so that PRSSA can have the opportunity to put on great events and conferences for future students.

Fun facts about me: I can lick my nose. I have been married for 2 years. I have a super cute Labradoodle named Crosby. I live in Syracuse, so I am commuting to school every day. I have a pineapple obsession! I have a pineapple in almost every room of my house!
