It was such an honor to be recognized at state conference as a “Rising Leader.” Our organization was facing budget cuts at the time so the money that I was awarded enabled me to attend annual conference the following year. When I received the “Rising Leader” award in 2012, I was working for Watson Clinic as the Website and Special Events Coordinator. Since then, I have been promoted twice and am now the Public Relations & Communications Manager. I served as president of our local FPRA chapter in 2012-2013, completed the Leadership Bartow Program in 2014-2016 and I’m currently a member of the Leadership Polk Program. FPRA has been extremely beneficial for me, and has helped with my successes throughout my career. My goal is to work towards earning my accreditation in the next couple of years.
