Meet Ellen Burke
PR Consultant  
 
Why did you join PRSA and what is one of the membership benefits you enjoy the most?
It is so easy to get consumed with the day-to-day of our jobs and the demands of our employers/clients. Membership in PRSA nudges you to re-focus on yourself and your career...not just your job. I strive to continuously deepen my expertise and gather best practices with my peers, so I particularly value the access I gain to through my membership to educational events/forums/workshops.
