Tell us about your PR background prior to joining RH Strategic.

Prior to joining RH, I was at Ketchum in the Social Marketing practice, where I supported national communications and awareness campaigns for federal clients. Before Ketchum, I was at The Harbour Group, where I worked on behalf of clients in the fields of international business, health care advocacy and consumer tech. I received my Master’s in Public Communication from American University’s School of Communication in 2013. At RH, I’m excited to be working with healthcare, technology and public sector clients.

Jenny Wang, Senior Account Executive at RH StrategicWhat’s your best kept “D.C. secret”?

Fun fact – I was once on Washington Post’s Date Lab.

When you are not working hard for your clients, where can we find you?

When I’m not on the job, you can find me catching up with friends over drinks, playing tennis, or playing with the nearest puppy.

Do you have any advice for PR pros early in their careers and looking to break into the industry?

Network, network, network. Whether it’s through professors, friends, friends of friends – don’t be afraid to show initiative and pursue possible connections. If you’re still in school or a recent grad, look into internships that will help you get your foot in the door.

Where is your dream vacation spot?

My dream vacation spot is Venice, Italy. I visited Venice years ago while studying abroad in Europe, and the beauty of the water canals and ancient buildings there has always stuck with me.
