Board Member Spotlight – Michelle Mambuca


How did you hear about the PRSA Gulf Coast Chapter?

My senior year of college I interned for Denyse Mesnick at Beasley Broadcast Group’s Corporate Headquarters in Naples. Denyse was involved in PRSA and took me with her to luncheons as a guest. It was great to tag along and get exposed to the PR world outside of college. I had a wonderful experience and learned so much at the luncheons!

What made you want to join as a member?

I was starting my career in the SWFL area and was looking for my next opportunity so PRSA was exactly where I needed to be. In this community everyone knows everyone and it was a smart way to network and get my name out there in the professional world. Also, I’ve always loved to network and I was involved in the student PRSSA and FPRA chapters at Florida Gulf Coast University so this was a different opportunity that I was excited to be a part of! I’ve enjoyed being a member for the past 4 years now!

Why did you join the PRSA Board and what position do you serve?

As a member I would help the board in any way that I could, like with communications and blog posts for example. When I knew I had the time to commit to a position I jumped right in! The board could use the help and I was happy to be there to assist. I now serve as the Gulf Coast Chapter’s Secretary. It has been a wonderful experience with an amazing group of people!

Where do you currently work and what is your day-to-day like?

I’m a Health and Beauty Consultant for Arbonne International. Arbonne International is a vegan company and abides by the European Union Standards so it has the highest quality of skincare, nutritionals, hair care, sun care and cosmetics. We have something for everyone! This opportunity is perfect for me because I own my own business but have so much flexibility! I’m my own boss, make my own schedule and work when I can or want. It’s so much different than my past jobs which were mainly 8-5pm so my day looks different every day and my week is not the typical 40 work week anymore. :)

What do you love best about your job?

I love helping people! I wake up every day with a passion for what I do. Even though Arbonne has been around for 35 years only 1% of the world has heard of them. So I get to be the word of mouth advertiser and educate people about what they’re putting onto their skin and into their bodies and how to live a healthier lifestyle. This job will also enable me to work from home and raise a family and be able to afford to do so. But the BEST part about my job is I get to pay it forward to others and help them accomplish their goals and dreams as well!

What do you enjoy doing on your spare time?

I have ample time to enjoy with my husband, Frankie (we got married last year on 12.13.14)! We love to spend time with our family and friends in Naples and Ft Lauderdale, we are involved in our church, we love to lounge by the pool, cook and bake delicious goodies and also travel! We’ve been fortunate enough to be able to travel more often and have visited family in NY this summer and we are going there again soon! Life is Good.

Insights from the PRSA Sunshine District Conference 2015 in Disney

IMG_3961Seven members of Gulf Coast Chapter PRSA participated in the recent PRSA Sunshine District conference held in Walt Disney World, Orlando. A few offer their thoughts/insights gleaned from the experience…

From Deb Jonsson…

I had a great experience learning, networking and taking advantage of the fun venue. Opening night was magical!

My favorite session was with keynote opener Duncan Wardle of Creative Inc. Duncan provided a different perspective on creative collaboration. He encouraged us to “make creativity a habit” and informed us that “the best ideas come from a calm, relaxed brain.”

PRSA National Chair Kathy Barbour informed us that PRSA is “continuing to adapt and evolve to stay relevant.” The strategic plan includes multi-year initiatives and APR is still a high priority. She shared insight on new business trends for integrated marketing communications which include a mix of paid, earned, shared and owned content. She also talked about her experience with the trending new social media tool, Periscope.

IMG_3958Disney manager of executive communications Cappy Surette discussed the importance of story-telling because, “story is the DNA of humans.” He also provided great tips on public speaking. He said speakers must bring passion and heart to the “stage” and in order to convey authenticity, practice makes perfect. He told us that attendees want to be entertained and speakers should follow the 3 Ps: Performance, Pacing and Practice.

Sam Ford from Peppercomm discussed the differences between an audience and publics. He reminded us that publics exist without you. He said, “Today we are communicating to and must serve the 360 degree person who sets his or her own personal criteria for sharing.” He also offered a test for social content… if your content does not make your audience say, “Holy Smokes!”, don’t post it!  He also encouraged communication professionals to put ourselves in the customers’ or clients’ shoes: get in line, fill out the forms; and read every piece of communication going out the door with the mindset of your audience, not the mindset of what the organization wants to say.

Board members and Mickey

Board members and Mickey

From Russell Tuff…

The best parts for me were, 1. Meeting and sharing with other professionals from across the state, 2. Remembering things I already know and keeping them in practice in my efforts, and 3. Learning new tricks of the trade from experienced professionals across a wide variety of industry spectrums.

From Judy Bricker…

My favorite speaker was the Disney exec [Duncan Wardle].  I have already been using his techniques on how to broaden a good idea, rather than squelch it!  When someone provides a germ of an idea, say YES AND…. Rather than “BUT” followed by all the reasons why it won’t work.  Cultivate the creative thought wherever it goes.  You never know where you’ll end up.

Keep creative brainstorming groups SMALL (4 people).  Any larger loses its focus.

His acronym: SUN stuck with me…
Suspend judgment
Understand the idea and ask questions
Nurture the idea

Disney Exec, Speaker, Duncan Wardle

Disney Exec, Speaker, Duncan Wardle

Introduce PLAY into your work day.  Play can be creative.  Play can be constructive.  Play can be positive.

I loved the conference!

From Alyssa Scheidemann…

I had a few favorite sessions. My first favorite session was the first one about thinking differently with the speaker Duncan Wardle because I felt it was very inspirational. I am a very creative person by nature, so I enjoy anything that encourages creativity as a way of thinking and approaching ideas. My second favorite session was the Power of Story, the other Disney one, because there were some good best practices mentioned. My last favorite session was the crisis communication one, about Facebook and social media because it was much needed for me to learn about. The best shareable take-away(s) to me were a mix from the Think Differently and the Power of Story, which were to think creatively and listen to other ideas, words are powerful, and that the stories that connect and relate to people have the most impact.



New Board Member Spotlight – Julie Pedretti, MBA, FACHE

What made you want to go into the public relations field?

I got into the marketing and public relations field at my first full time career position at a bank in Milwaukee. Then I was working in the market research department (understanding customers and why they make certain decisions) and became very interested in that. I started in health communications at a large health system in Milwaukee, and eventually become director of Marketing and PR at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin (Milwaukee), which I absolutely loved!

Why did you become involved in the PRSA Gulf Coast Chapter?

I wanted very much to continue my professional development. I was finally living and working in Naples so it was a great opportunity to get into the PRSA organization and its local chapter. I want to advance to the PRSA fellowship, as I had with the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE). The FACHE is an accreditation that has a similar process to the APR certification. I’m anxious to get started with the APR certification this fall!

What is a typical day like for you at work?

My days are not typical because the role I have is so varied. My title at NCH Healthcare System is Director of Development – Annual Fund & Communications. I’m responsible for planning and implementing direct mail and email campaigns and other efforts to support donor acquisition and retention for the NCH Healthcare Foundation. I also develop collateral material to assist major gift officers with their donor relationships and manage the Foundation’s media relations, advertising, public relations, website and social media efforts. I’m very proud of our media relations, as we’ve had wonderful PR for our key fundraising events. My role is a very broad one; it’s a new position for the NCH foundation. I’m learning a lot about fundraising from the team.

What made you decide to join the PRSA Board?

When I join an organization I always get involved. There was an opportunity right away to fill the open treasurer position, and for me it was a way to jump right in and become engaged. I’m having fun and it’s a great way to meet people right away as well!

Do you have any hobbies or talents outside of work?

I love to walk the beach! One of the reasons I moved to Florida was for more beach time. I also love to play golf and most weekends I’ll get into 18 holes of golf. This is such a wonderful place to live and work!

Board Member Spotlight – Pamela Fultz

What did you study in college?

For both my Associate of Arts and Bachelor of Arts degrees, I studied Communications. I obtained an internship at a radio station during my sophomore year of college, so my focus turned toward broadcasting as a specialty. My Master of Science degree is in Corporate & Organizational Communications with an emphasis on Leadership.

How did you become involved in public relations and the PRSA Gulf Coast Chapter?

After spending more than a dozen years as a reporter and anchor for radio and television, I decided to transition into public relations. The industry seemed to be a good fit for my skills, allowing me to research and disseminate positive organizational stories. Once entrenched in the new industry, I discovered PRSA through a professional connection. I attended one lunch meeting and enjoyed the topic, as it was timely and industry-relevant, so I decided to become a member.

What is a typical day like for you at work?

There is no typical day when it comes to community outreach and public relations. As Manager of Community Relations for Vi at Bentley Village, I formulate and implement the media relations strategy and manage the corporate partnership plan. It is my job to coordinate visits by local media outlets, organize on-campus events for our non-profit partners, direct off-campus outreach activities, and oversee multiple sponsorships and professional affiliations. One day I may be attending a formal affair, but the next day I may be assisting with a golf tournament.

Tell us something unique about you. Any hobbies or talents?

I was raised on a farm in rural Ohio, so I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. On Saturdays and Sundays, I spend my mornings bicycling through Olde Naples. When I am not on my bike, I am walking on the beach, reading, or traveling.

What is the future like for you?

I begin a doctoral program this fall, so I am about to get even busier. I enjoy learning from and interacting with others who are focused on enriching their knowledge through advanced academics. I am excited to commence my exploration of organizational leadership through the Doctorate of Education program at Northeastern University in Boston.

What made you decide to join the PRSA Board and what position do you currently hold?

I serve as Programs Chairperson for the PRSA Board. I chose to join the board in order to enhance and magnify my knowledge base and to grow my professional contact list. So far, the experience has been remarkable. I am humbled to work with such a talented group of public relations professionals!

Board Member Spotlight – Alyssa Scheidemann

AlyssaS_July2014What did you study in school?

In high school I was involved in TV Production and originally wanted to be a news anchor. In college I was on the Communications Studies degree path but I decided I was not interested in this form of communication. I thought about switching my path to public relations but I stayed with Communication Studies and was able to take writing courses; I always had a passion for writing. I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Communication and after college started with ASG Software Solutions.

How did you become involved in public relations and the PRSA Gulf Coast Chapter?

I was always interested in learning about public relations and pursuing that avenue. When I was a Marketing Coordinator at ASG Software Solutions I was working with a former coworker at the time and she took me to a public relations networking luncheon in Ft Myers. I really enjoyed the luncheon, I learned a lot but I was hesitant to join that chapter because of the distance (I live and work in Naples). It was always in the back of my mind, to join an organization like this and ASG gave me the opportunity to be involved in one! Last year my mom saw a luncheon online for PRSA and some of her friends were attending so she encouraged me to go with them. So I went to that luncheon and that was it!

What is a typical day like for you at work?

I create and manage the email systems and email marketing at ASG Software Solutions. It could be a hectic and crazy day or it can be laid-back, it all depends on the current projects and deadlines. I love my job and the opportunities that I have been given!

Tell us something unique about you. Any hobbies or talents?

I’ve always loved writing! I have three young, female cousins and I was inspired to create a children’s book to give them inspiration. The book is titled The Enchanted Forest and I wrote and illustrated the children’s book myself by using a graphic design program on my computer. The Enchanted Forest was published in 2012 and is the first of The Allegra Series. I also practice yoga twice a week, I love boating and playing tennis and I just started stand-up paddle boarding as well!

What is the future like for you?

I’m working on applying for a Master’s program. That’s something I’ve always wanted to do. After I get my Master’s degree I plan on getting my APR. My education and career are priority to me but I will always continue being involved in the community and writing, both are a huge passion for me!

What made you decide to join the PRSA Board and what position do you currently hold?

I thought it would be a great opportunity to expand my PR knowledge and to be more involved. I joined the board as the Communications Chair. Being on the board is so much fun, we have a great group of leaders! Funny story, a month before I was asked to join the board at a PRSA luncheon a member asked me if I was on the board. So I think it was meant to be!
