PRSA Portland Metro Chapter

Erin Merz, APR is our Volunteer of the Month for November 2013


Nov 13


Erin Merz, APR, has a decade of public relations experience in a variety of industries, including nonprofit, sustainability, tourism, consumer products and outdoor recreation. She recently moved to Portland from Connecticut after spending nearly three years managing public relations for Mystic Aquarium. Erin is currently a freelance public relations professional and an associate with Brink Communications, where she partners with clients committed to change for good. When she’s not sharing her clients’ stories, she’s exploring the great outdoors with her German shorthaired pointer and wingman, Goose. “Being new to Portland and the Pacific Northwest, I was lucky to have an instant community of likeminded people through PRSA. I’m a firm believer in a recurring theme from this year’s Annual Meeting: you only get out what you put in. And what better way to get involved than to volunteer? It’s an honor to contribute to the advancement of the PR profession. “
