Caitlin Ryan, APR
I’m an Account Supervisor on the Public Relations team at Mower, one of America’s largest privately held full-service advertising, marketing and public relations agencies. I’m responsible for developing public relations strategies for clients, including media relations, content marketing, social media, influencer marketing and event activation. With more than eight years of agency experience, I’ve worked on countless clients in a range of industries, but my specialties are health and wellness, travel and tourism, and B2B.
In addition to client work, I’m passionate about mentoring the next generation of public relations professionals. I serve as an adjunct lecturer at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I teach Public Relations Writing, run the public relations intern program at Mower and served as chair of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Charlotte New Professionals from 2017-2018.
Prior to joining Mower, I worked at a healthcare marketing agency in New York as a media strategist where I developed paid, owned and shared media strategies for hospitals and physician practices.
I earned a M.S. in Public Relations from Quinnipiac University and a B.A. in Communication Studies with a concentration in Journalism from the State University of New York at Cortland. I currently serve on the board of PRSA Charlotte as co-chair of the Communications Symposium, and on the Communications Council of the Junior League of Charlotte.
In my free time, I love to read (paper books, e-books and audiobooks – I don’t discriminate!) and listen to live music, from pop-punk shows at tiny, underground venues, to the Charlotte Symphony and ballet at grand theaters in uptown.
