Emily Olesen - VP of Digital Communication

MEET EMILY!

Year in school: Seniors

Dream Job: Doing fashion PR for a major company in New York City

How I got involved in PRSSA: I went to a Fashion PR event and absolutely loved it. That event is want made me decide that I wanted to do fashion PR as my career. I joined PRSSA that week and ran for the Executive Board three weeks after that.

Advice to current/future PRSSA members: Get involved! My biggest regret is not getting more involved at school until the end of my third year at UVU. Take advantage of the amazing opportunities that PRSSA offers with the events, trips, and networking.

What I want to accomplish on the Executive Board: I want to make sure that members/non-members are informed about events so that we have high attendance at our events. I want to create a UVU PR community and make everyone feel included and important. As for myself personally, I hope to develop more social media and graphic design skills that can benefit my future career.

Fun fact about me: I'm obsessed with anything leopard print, I love going to concerts, and I can't live without Dr. Pepper.
