Meet Megan Abbott:
Megan is an Account Executive on the Consumer/Marketing and Brand Strategy Team at GolinHarris. Having been raised by a professional football player and having played Division 1 collegiate volleyball herself, Megan now brings her athletic background, passion for sports and competitive spirit to the PR industry.
As the sports specialist at GolinHarris in Los Angeles, Megan has significant experience executing media relations programs for major brands surrounding the Super Bowl, NCAA basketball tournament, NCAA football, professional cycling and the Olympic Games. She brings her sports savvy, creative ideas and media relations skills to a variety of consumer accounts, including the California Avocado Commission, Hass Avocado Board, Nestlé confections, NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) and the Amgen Tour of California professional cycling race.
Megan moved to Los Angeles and began her career at GolinHarris as a public relations specialist after graduating from Villanova University in 2006. While in school, Megan learned the foundation of her media relations skills while interning at Robinson Packer, a boutique public relations company in Philadelphia.
In 2008, Megan joined the PRSA-LA Young Professionals Board as the Program Co-Chair, helping to organize engaging monthly programs for YP members. In January 2009 Megan took over as president of the YP board, with the vision of expanding the group’s membership and participation, while adding an extra element of fun to all YP events.
For fun, Megan enjoys any and everything active and outdoors. Having grown up in Florida, she loves all things aquatic, and brags about her impressive fishing, scuba diving and aptitude at catching lobsters. As her infamous sense of humor (and 6’3” stature) indicates, she believes the most important thing in life is to laugh, love and be happy.
