Vice President of Member Services
Jenna Newman, 2020–2021 vice president of member services, is a first-year graduate student at Villanova University. Jenna is pursuing a master’s in communication with a certificate in public relations and advertising. During her master’s program, she will also serve as a communication/marketing graduate assistant for the Falvey Memorial Library. She previously graduated from the University of Delaware in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in interpersonal communication and a minor in global studies.
Newman joined the University of Delaware Chapter of PRSSA her freshman year and hasn’t looked back since. She served as PR director, diversity director and vice president of professional development during her time at Delaware. Newman also attended the 2019 National Assembly in Portland and 2019 International Conference in San Diego. She also served as a District Ambassador for the 2019–2020 academic year.
PRSSA has given Newman an opportunity to both grow her professional network, learn new skills and make life-long friends through the organization. Moving into this new role as vice president of member services, she hopes to bring light to all of the many opportunities PRSSA can provide for students, while helping Chapters grow and succeed.
When she’s not studying or working on PRSSA to-dos, you can find her rock climbing, curled up with a good memoir or planning her next trip.
