  • Headshot of Jessica Rice

    The applied curriculum and real-world client work exposed me to what being an independent consultant could be like, and it gave me the confidence to go for it. I use the PRCC strategic planning model with all of my clients, and I think back to things taught in classes like Social Media, Media Relations, SEO, Cause Consulting, and even Ethics on a regular basis.”
