Name: Megan Keohane
Title: Account Supervisor
Date Started at Buchanan PR: May 2014
Favorite Part of Working in Public Relations: Strategy is my favorite component – I love figuring out how we can tell a story to the right audience. But overall, I love the variety that the industry offers. I work with clients in all different industries, from financial services to healthcare to baked goods. Every day is unique, and I’m always learning something new.
Tip for Other Public Relations Professionals: Take professional growth into your own hands. Attend networking events, watch free webinars and find every opportunity to connect with industry colleagues. Exchanging ideas is invaluable; it can significantly expand what you have to offer your agency or company, and your clients.
Most Memorable Moment at Buchanan PR: There have been plenty! But I’ll never forget September 16, 2015, when we announced that Rosemont College was cutting tuition by 43 percent. Several of us worked tirelessly for months strategizing and preparing for the announcement. Anne and I even split a bottle of red (or “inspiration juice,” as we called it) at her house the night before and cranked out some last-minute materials until 10pm. And all of our hard work paid off – it was a massive success, by all means.
Pet Peeve: Being physically poked. Ew.
Guilty Pleasure: I’m obsessed with the Design Home app on my phone.
Favorite After Work Activity: Similar to Johnny, I also go to CrossFit most days after work to coach and work out. But once a week or so, my fiancé and I like to take a rest day and whip up a really yummy dinner to enjoy together.
