ROSWELL, Ga. — Roswell Inc’s director of communications, Carisa Turner, has been recognized as one of the Public Relations Society of America’s Georgia Chapter’s Forty Under 40 public relations and communications professionals for 2019.

PRSA Georgia is the second largest chapter of the PRSA, the nation’s largest professional organization serving the communications community.

PRSA Georgia’s Forty Under 40 program, which is in its inaugural year, honors emerging leaders within the public relations and communications industry who excel in their field while also giving back to their industry and community.

Turner, along with the other Forty Under 40 recipients, was recognized during an awards celebration on April 25 at Emory University’s Miller-Ward House.

Forty Under 40 honorees were nominated by their peers and selected by a committee of former PRSA Georgia Chapter presidents. To be considered for the list, individuals had to be under the age of 40 as of May 1, 2019, employed in a communications role with a Georgia-based company, and hold at least one corporate or civic leadership position.

The Forty Under 40 program is open to both PRSA Georgia members and non-members.
