Spring on the York College campus

Kristie Galvani '01

Executive Vice President
Rubenstein PR
"I'll never forget Professor Lowell Brigg's public relations courses. I loved getting real-life experience including working with a local nonprofit organization to build out a public relations campaign and getting a call in the middle of the night that set me into a 24-hour mock crisis scenario. That was one of the most intense and memorable moments of my time at York."

Current City: Seaford, NY

YCP Degree: BA Public Relations, Mass Communications
