Student Testimonials:
“My experience working with Amy Sufak was phenomenal. Amy is a highly skilled professional with an unparalleled experience in both the private sector and the government. Public Relations is something I have always been interested in and after having worked with Amy I feel like I had the knowledge needed to pursue a career in PR. I had the opportunity to refine my writing skills to include press releases, conduct media training, participate in community meetings and events, execute event planning, interact in meetings with clients, design brochures for clients, coordinate launch parties and so much more. Amy made me feel like a part of the team and my experience working with her was world-class.”
