The profession of public relations has been my life’s work, and the leadership and integrity of my practice has meant everything to me. I am so proud PRSA has found it fitting to bestow upon me its highest crown of achievement in our profession. I intend to continue to be worthy of this prestigious honor for many years to come”.
