“A public relations professional is part business manager, part sociologist, part cheerleader, part confessor and part pit bull. You can count on doing creative and innovative work that makes an impact. The trick to being successful is to be prepared for anything. You can always count on the fact that tomorrow will bring new and exciting challenges and opportunities.”

— Lucas Westcoat, Account Executive, Waggener Edstrom, Seattle
