Gabby Juarez - VP of Digital Media
Year in school: Senior
Favorite Class: Sports PR
Dream Job: Doing PR for a professional sports team.
How I got involved in PRSSA: I got involved with PRSSA my first semester at UVU. Tanner, our current president, was on the board and in my Intro to PR class. He spoked about PRSSA several times throughout the semester. I finally went to my first event at the end of the semester! I then signed up and was accepted to go to the PRSSA Regional Conference in LA. I also decided to run for the board and here I am!
Advice to current/future PRSSA members: I know it can be intimidating to go to your first PRSSA event, especially if you don't know anyone. I was on that same boat. Get involved! We have some of the nicest people EVER, you will make friends easily. And if you are on the fence about running for the board, reach out to someone on the board currently. They can share their experience and advice. No experience is necessary to run. Just get involved and you will get the experience you need!
What I want to accomplish on the Executive Board: My goal is to keep everyone informed about PRSSA and upcoming events. Social media allows people to connect, and I want our members to feel connected to PRSSA and its members.
