The PRSA NJ member spotlight recognizes and helps us get to know our fellow chapter members. Each month, we randomly select a PRSA NJ member or members to highlight. This month, we are featuring Samantha Anton who joined PRSA NJ in August of 2020 – in the middle of the pandemic. You will get to learn more about Samantha below and find out why membership in PRSA NJ is important to her.
Assistant Director, Public Relations and Marketing, Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center (RWJBarnabas Health)
PRSA NJ member since 2020
How did you get into the field of PR? I had a pretty traditional route. Between my love of writing and working on the school newspaper from a young age, I knew early on that I wanted to study Public Relations. I purposely attended a college that offered a Public Relations specialty within a School of Journalism.
What do you love most about PR? I love working with the diverse group of people, patients, and departments that I come in contact with at the hospital and I feel blessed to be able to share their stories.
What is the value of being a member of PRSA NJ? I have learned so much from other members and find the support invaluable, especially as we’ve navigated the pandemic.
THANK YOU Samantha for being a valued member of PRSA NJ and to all of our members for helping to make our chapter an outstanding one!
