What’s your favorite part about working at NRPR Group?
The team! Everyone here is so nice and they truly care about your well-being.
Tell us one of your proudest moments on the job:
I’ve only been at NRPR Group for a couple months, but I was really excited to get my first hit for our client, Heal, on one of their big announcements last month. At one of my previous jobs, I secured two feature profile stories for my past client, Lisa Vanderpump, in New York Magazine and Entrepreneur Magazine, both in the same week. It felt good!
When you’re not working on earning coverage for your clients or learning the ropes at NRPR Group, what can we find you doing?
Hiking, yoga, working out, dancing, trying new restaurants in Los Angeles, going to art museums, laughing, winking, and traveling! (Yes, I said winking).
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to someone hoping to start a career in PR?
Remember to use your resources, connections, and out-of-the-box ideas to garner media attention. Thinking creatively to make something happen usually has the biggest results for clients. Also, remember that patience and some polite media stalking are key for success in PR, along with networking and communicating with other media professionals. You want to be remembered!
