Calling All Mentors and Mentees!

We are gearing up to launch the 2017 mentorship program, which pairs PR and communications professionals in the first five years of their career with seasoned PR professionals with at least 10 years of experience. Mentors assist mentees in developing professional skills and passing along valuable knowledge to aid in the advancement of a mentees career.

Mentors meet with mentees throughout the year to discuss the PR profession and answer any questions mentees may have about the direction of their career. If you’re a PR professional with at least 10 years of experience and want to share your knowledge of the communications industry with a rising PR professional, or if you are a young professional in the first five years of your career looking for a trusted mentor to answer your tough career questions, this program is for you.

If you’re interested in participating as a mentor or mentee in the 2017 Mentorship Program, please email Aisha Fletcher and Whitney Strittmatter at fletcher.aisha@gmail.com and whitstritt@gmail.com with your name, company, industry, number of years of experience and expertise/interests by December 31st.


 

Partner Spotlight


Katie Mudd, account executive at TrizCom Public Relations and member of PRSA Dallas’ programs committee

1. Who (or what) introduced you to PRSA Dallas and how long have you been part of the chapter? Upon graduation from SMU in May 2014, as I launched my post-college career, I wanted to proactively engage with the professionals whom I admired and would like to eventually work alongside. The best and most direct path was clear to me as I learned more about the Dallas chapter of PRSA, especially with the careful guidance and industry knowledge that Sandy Duhe provided me. It was at the 2015 Christmas Party that she encouraged me to become more involved with PRSA. Before I knew it, I was honored with an invite to join the programs committee, thus beginning my professional relationship with PRSA. It has been such a joy to serve PRSA Dallas and I am so grateful for the opportunity to connect and explore the nuances of this crazy industry with like-minded people.

2. What is one piece of advice you would give new PRSA Dallas members and prospective members? Don’t be a stranger. I’ve never attended an event hosted by PRSA Dallas where I haven’t left without meeting a new face. By simply attending a breakfast, lunch or happy hour hosted by PRSA Dallas your network will instantly and incrementally grow in size.

3. Any hobbies or quirks to confess? I am a shopaholic! The DFW metroplex has more shopping per capita than any other U.S. city. When I am not out on the town shopping or keeping up with Dallas’ latest boutique openings, I am most likely at home rearranging my collection of garden turtles. Don’t laugh, those turtles, coupled with my stable of ornamental flamingos, keep careful watch over the swimming pool when I’m not in it.  

4. What is on your coffee table? Currently resting on my coffee table is a turtle platter, locally designed coasters that were procured at the last Cottonwood Art Festival, and, not ironically, a coffee table book entitled Life Magazine’s The Day Kennedy Died book. The coffee table is kept pretty clean because catalogs, magazines or anything else left on the table will quickly become confetti at the teeth of my pups, Heidi and Coco.

5. What is your favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant? I use the term “restaurant” loosely. If a “restaurant” could be the most magical purveyor of sweet treats in round form, then you will be able to find my husband and me in line at Jaram’s Donuts in Far North Dallas on most Saturday mornings – picking up chocolate donuts, with bacon (!!!) sprinkles to feed my sweet tooth!
