Top 1% influencer Carrie Morgan is a digital public relations professional who specializes in digital PR – the intersection of public relations, content marketing, social media and SEO.

When she isn’t wrangling journalists, herding cats, and putting out fires for Rock The Status Quo (her PR firm), she moderates one of the largest public relations Twitter chats in the U.S., #PRprochat, and is a co-moderator of the 1,000 member Facebook Group for PR pros and journalists, @PhoenixPRPros. She’s also a left-handed bookworm who once taught a swami to roller-skate.
