Life Motto: “This above all: to thine own self be true.” -Shakespeare

Emily Talbot transferred to UVU as a sophomore in the fall of 2015 and plans to graduate with a Communication degree with a Public Relations emphasis in the spring of 2018. Emily is a HUGE people person, and could not be more enthusiastic of having the opportunity to work with the excellent members of PRSSA as Secretary.

Since her initial switch into the fascinating realm of public relations, Emily has been invited to serve on UVU’s elite Public Relations Case Study Competition team for the 2017-2018 school year. Emily could not be more excited to work within PRSSA and plans on helping all members feel welcomed and passionate about “PR”. She believes that PRSSA is a HUGE benefit to current public relation students and loves how inclusive, enthusiastic, and opportunity-providing it can be.

Along with public relations, Emily’s passions include songwriting and anything music-related, animals of all shapes and sizes (yes, even snakes!), baking (because everybody loves more sugar in their life), and making people laugh. Emily is passionate in the belief that life is meant to be enjoyed, and dedicates her free time in helping others (and animals!) find that happiness.

FUN FACT: Tyler served an LDS mission in Colombia where he was robbed 13 times, was caught in a riot and stabbed during one of his altercations.
