I moved to Prescott 5 years ago from Gilchrist Oregon after graduating from Oregon State University with a degree in Business/Marketing. Relocating to Arizona with my husband, Aaron, was supposed to be a short term reprieve from the snowy winters. Prescott quickly became a home away from home with friendly faces, four wonderful seasons of weather and excellent outdoor life.
Young Professionals Shine in Prescott – Megan Smith
I began my career at Prescott Newspapers as an account executive.We were not planning on staying more than a year, but the position seemed challenging and I knew it would push my comfort zone and build a valuable skill set.I enjoyed working with local businesses to develop marketing solutions and share in their successes.Thanks to a wonderful company at Prescott Newspapers and an incredible mentor, I quickly found success.In 4 years I have been promoted to PNI.,advertising sales manager.Today I look forward to bringing synergy to our products and the needs of the local marketplace, whether it is print or digital services.As part of PAYP, I serve as the Marketing Chair and recently the chair for our annual Party in the Pines event.The largest fundraiser I’ve chaired to date was notably the most successful.Raising over $12,000 for Prescott Unified School District Foundation with an estimated 3,000 in attendance.Thanks to a wonderful team of dedicated and motivated young professionals, this was a rewarding experience that I am very proud to have been a part of.Success as a young professional requires a hyper focus on personal growth and the constant quest for knowledge.As a millennial manager the stigmas are diverse; as a wife and mother the pressures are many; and as a leader, the responsibilities can be great.However, if it wasn’t all challenging, it wouldn’t be for me.Obstacles breed greatness and self-reflection is the greatest skill you can develop.
