Member Spotlight: Diana Berardocco, APR

Q: Where do you work?

Currently, I’m an independent solopreneur who helps organizations, businesses, and individuals gain greater visibility through content marketing and content writing. Health and wellness issues are a prime interest. One of my recent articles is on the issue of “brain fog,” a cognitive impairment that has been associated with COVID-19 and impacts the quality of life for millions of people. For readers who are interested in the issue, here is the LinkedIn post https://bit.ly/47BPIMV

Q: How long have you been a PRSA member?

I’ve been a PRSA member since 2000 and accredited since 2001.

Q: How has your career benefited from being a PRSA member?

I have always valued the APR accreditation for its emphasis on the application of a strategic communications framework and analysis to our communications work. I also continue to benefit from the substantial resources PRSA provides its members and the expectation that, as an accredited member, we meet Accreditation renewal every three years with continuing education and professional development.

Q: Can you share a fun fact?

Enjoying good food is fun. One of my favorite appetizers when I eat at an Italian restaurant is fried calamari. I’ve been collecting the names of the best calamari dishes I’ve enjoyed in Northern Virginia restaurants and the recipes for fun.
