Where Are They Now?

Martine Subey participated in PRSSA for three years. She served as the Community Service Chair, Member Services Coordinator, and President. She currently works as an Assistant Account Executive in the Healthcare Practice of Ogilvy New York. She loves being challenged by the different creative angles of healthcare PR and enjoys being part of something she never expected. Her advice to students: “I have two big pieces of advice for PRSSA members. The first is to never be afraid to try your skills in a new type of PR or even industry. It's great to have a niche, but it's also great to prove toy ourself that you aren't confined to that and that you have the ability to push beyond your comfort zone and be really good at something you thought was out of your league (which it NEVER is.) Who knows- you may love it, just like I love healthcare now. Second piece is to travel. I'm not saying that for recreational purposes only, but to actually help you in this industry. We are in a field that requires you to truly understand new demographics and lifestyles, and the more you know about the world and people, the better and more unique work  and messages you can produce for a client.  I made sure I took time to travel right after graduation and it was the best decision I could've made because I came to my first day of work with a knowledge of a whole new lifestyle and group of people. Whether it's a new country or new state, it's all beneficial (and fun!)”
