Megan Paquin, vice president at Poston Communications, has been selected as an adjunct instructor at the University of Central Florida’s Nicholson School of Communication and Media. Paquin is teaching Public Relations Case Studies in the advertising/public relations program, which provides future communications professionals with a blend of both worlds.
The senior-level course examines real-world case studies in public relations. Under the guidance of Paquin, who brings more than a decade of experience leading communications strategies for some of the world’s most respected brands, students conduct an analysis of the situation and objectives and make strategic recommendations on how to move forward.
“What I really like about the class is that the students are so engaged and insightful and bring unique perspectives that have made me think a lot differently about the work we do,” Paquin said.
At Poston Communications, Paquin thrives in complex, high-stakes situations. Her work in crisis management and litigation communications has proven essential to bolster the reputations of her clients. With experience in a broad range of legal matters and vulnerabilities that exist in today’s world, she effectively counsels clients and collaborates with legal counsel to plan for and respond to critical issues that threaten operations and reputations.
Paquin earned a Bachelor of Arts in organizational communication at UCF and a Master of Arts in behavioral economics from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She has an Accreditation in Public Relations (APR), is a Certified Public Relations Counselor (CPRC) and serves as president of the Florida Public Relations Association’s Orlando chapter.
