The Five: a Q&A spotlight on a member

Linda Beheler, APR, global corporate communications and public relations director

1.  What made you decide to get into PR?
As I was considering different careers I looked at my college extracurricular activities and realized I had naturally leaned into public relations committees and programs. I’d been attracted to the function and enjoyed spending my time creating awareness and driving people to action. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found a career that I enjoy and one that offers so many opportunities to learn and grow.  

2.  What is one piece of advice you would give new PRSA Dallas members and prospective members?
Show up and connect. Go to events and make an effort to really talk to and connect with at least three people. Converse with them with things beyond the weather. Look into their eyes and listen to what they’re saying. Don’t try to work the room and meet everyone. Often the most valuable connections are those that aren’t obvious – they don’t scream, but instead, whisper.

3.  Any hobbies or quirks to confess?
I adopted a dog last year and she is my hobby. She’s quite sociable so we spend a lot of time combing the aisles of Lowes, Petsmart and North Haven Gardens as well as hanging out at dog parks.

4.  If you could go anywhere tomorrow, where would you go? Italy. Definitely Italy.
