    What word or phrase best reflects/describes your personal "theme" for 2020? Always be nimble. 

    What are you looking to get out of PRSA? I’m excited about local, regional, and national networking opportunities with my counterparts at other hotels / organizations, as well as the media. 

    Looking at the disruption and feelings of anxiety the COVID-19 outbreak has caused, what's the most inspiring example of community you've observed? I’ve been most inspired by the influencers and journalists who have used their platforms to encourage people – to their own detriment – not to travel. People have prioritized the safety and wellbeing of others over their business.
