Stephanie Smith has earned her Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) as of February 2018. The APR is awarded by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) and the Universal Accreditation Board to experts in the field of public relations. The APR credential certifies drive, professionalism, and principles demonstrating one’s leadership and expertise within the field.

Earning the APR requires practitioners to assert professional competence and communicate professional expertise and values through a readiness review panel. Upon successful completion of the readiness review, practitioners advance to the exam. The computerized examination requires practitioners to demonstrate expertise in 12 areas of competency including law and ethics, theory, strategic management, and research methods. With over a decade of PR experience, Smith is now recognized as a leader in the industry.

Stephanie’s APR will play a critical role in the services provided to The PRIME Factory’s public relations clients. With her APR, the agency’s clients are being represented by one of the top industry professionals as recognized by this accolade.
