These days, social media is no longer owned by marketing agencies. PR pros are natural social media experts because of their knack for storytelling and community building.

That’s the big industry change Meredith Shubel sees from her position as senior account coordinator with Caster Communications. We spoke with her for our series about the daily travails of the PR pro.

Her secret for getting through the workday? Highlighters and plenty of cups of tea.

1. What time do you wake up?

If I don’t have an early morning call (fingers crossed!), I usually wake up at 08:00 and have the luxury of coming into the office at 09:30 a.m. (Of course, that usually means I’m here until after 18:00.)

3. Who is the most important person at work you talk to during your day?
