Member Spotlight

Michelle George, engagement specialist, United Way of Metropolitan Dallas

1.   What made you decide to get into PR? I came to PR unconventionally. I started out as an actor and lived in New York doing that professionally until the recession. When I came back to Texas, I was ready for a career change. I evaluated my strengths and passions, and realized the parts I loved about show business translated well into PR: personal branding, content writing and public speaking. I decided to go back to school to get my masters to make sure I was fully prepared for the next chapter. I enrolled in the online Strategic Public Relations program at George Washington University and will graduate in May.
2What do you value the most about being part of PRSA Dallas and/or how has it helped you in your career path? I value all the industry connections and opportunities to get involved. I started volunteering the week I joined PRSA Dallas, and now I do the social media around events. So far, it's a great resume builder, and we'll see where it leads in the future.
3.  What is one piece of advice you would give new PRSA Dallas members and prospective members? I would say to do everything you can. Get out there and meet people. I sometimes feel like I'm at a disadvantage because I came late to the party, but through networking and getting involved, I am gaining industry contacts and experience.
4.   Any hobbies or quirks to confess? I love to cook and eat interesting food. Some of my friends think I'm crazy because I'm looking for the best bone marrow in Dallas. It really is quite delicious.
5What is on your coffee table? My wedding album. My husband and I eloped in the Bahamas. I love keeping the book out to reminisce over the beautiful pictures of a wonderful day. Also an EOS lip balm and a D CEO Women cookie that I got from an event last week. It's just such a beautiful cookie, I don't want to eat it!
6.  If you could invite any three people to dinner (past or present), who would you choose? Gloria Steinem. What would she say about the current state of feminism in America? Malala Yousafzai. She was shot by the Taliban for promoting women's education. What a brave woman. Diane Rehm. I would love to hear stories from her amazing career in journalism.
