As the Vice President of Outreach, Rachel's number one priority is communicating with members. From leading outreach teams at student orientations to recruiting new members during DiscoverFest, Mayhew ensures every student is informed about the importance of joining the Public Relations Student Society of America.
Mayhew knew that she wanted to be involved as much as possible, especially after transferring from Citrus College. She proactively got involved with PRSSA by joining both the Outreach and President's Committee before running for an executive board position. California State University, Fullerton’s PRSSA Chapter helped her grow professional and academic opportunities and shared this story with communications students.
As the Vice President of Outreach, Mayhew broke all-time membership records two years in a row bringing PRSSA the title of largest student-run organization at CSUF. Internationally, she made CSUF the second largest international Chapter and the largest Chapter on the West Coast. With nearly 300 active members, Mayhew proudly leaves her legacy as the woman who left CSUF with breakthrough membership records.
Outside of PRSSA, Mayhew has interned with The Literacy Project Foundation. Her passion for public relations helped promote the foundations two major events, the annual “What Dreams Are Made Of” Gala and “Cheers for Literacy”. As an intern, she was given the opportunity to work with Powerhouse Communications and assisted with the agency’s event promotions. During her final semester at CSUF, she held the position of Social Media Manager at Practical Advantage Agency where she was the social media manager for IOGEAR, a leader in USB-C technology.
Mayhew currently holds two AA degrees in Communication Studies and Language Arts and will earn her Bachelor of Arts in Communications and minor in Human Communication Studies this May.
