Why PRSA? I joined PRSA to network with public relations professionals and to learn about the industry as I transitioned from journalism to PR. The connections I made and things I learned while taking part in the professional development programming helped me land my first PR job. Now, in addition to continued networking and professional development, it’s great to keep up with the latest advancements and trends in the profession, build leadership skills, and become a more well-rounded individual overall. As a bonus, you meet inspiring, intelligent and passionate people with diverse backgrounds and interests.
Brianne Mundy Page has worked in communications and public relations for 15 years. She’s proud to have recently joined the Port of San Diego as a Marketing & Public Relations Representative. The Port is entrusted by the state of California with managing San Diego Bay and its surrounding waterfront. Page has the pleasure of publicizing and being an advocate for the many ways the Port serves the San Diego region and its visitors through maritime, water and land recreation, tourism, environmental stewardship, and public safety. The Port has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in public improvements in its five member cities – Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach, National City and San Diego.
Prior to joining the Port of San Diego, Page worked for Donate Life California – the state organ, eye and tissue donor registry (a cause close to her heart as her dad saved and healed 52 people as a tissue donor upon his death), KUSI-TV in San Diego where she earned an Emmy nomination in news producing, and WOI-TV in her hometown of Des Moines, Iowa. She volunteers as a public information officer for the American Red Cross of San Diego/Imperial Counties.
