ATHENS, Ga. - Tucker Sarkisian, Director of Public Relations at SweetWater Brewing Company, came out to support UGA AdPR week with a candid and informational guest talk on everything from her robust career to her beginnings as a UGA Grady student. Sarkisian was recently named one of UGA’s 40 under 40; having her share her career advice and experience at AdPR Week with UGA was an honor.

Despite graduating a mere seventeen years ago, Sarkisian has made her mark on multiple different industries. Though she started out working at the UGA Grady College, she quickly jumped to editorial writing for Jezebel and then on to having her own firm. With many adventures in between every milestone, Sarkisian is now running the Public Relations department for one of the most well-known craft beers. She seems to have done it all - but you wouldn’t know it from her modest demeanor.

Sarkisian is approachable and honest about her success story. Listening to her speak not only inspired those in attendance, but captivated the spirit of AdPR week. She lectured on how to have fun with your career, take chances, and never give up on yourself. Throughout her interactive speech, she took listeners through a typical day at SweetWater. Polling the audience for crisis solutions and social media savvy tools, Sarkisian showed students that creativity and collaboration go a long way.

AdPR Week at UGA wouldn’t have been complete without Sarkisian in attendance. Thank you to both her and everyone else who made the week’s celebrations possible.
