Adrienne Sabo HeadshotName: Adrienne Sabo Current company and position : Associate Creative Director, The Prodigal Company

Education/background: Bachelor's degree in journalism from Youngstown State University, and I have been working in the advertising and PR field for the last 5 years.

How long have you lived in Cleveland?  I live in Youngstown, Ohio, but I visit Cleveland pretty often.

Why did you choose to be on the E!C board of directors?   I chose to get involved with E!C because, as a young professional, it can sometimes be difficult to feel connected to the city you live and work in, and it's hard to find opportunities for your own growth. But E!C is changing that. And I'm hoping my skills in advertising and PR can help bring more awareness to our work.

What will E!C’s role in Cleveland be in the future?  I think that E!C will play a large role in shaping the future of Cleveland. By keeping young professionals in Cleveland and helping them to feel connected to the city, I think you’ll see even more positive changes.

What opportunities and challenges does E!C face?  E!C has tremendous opportunities available. Young professionals and millennials, when engaged, can be some of your fiercest supporters. It's important for us to find ways to connect with those individuals, because I believe once they are aware of E!C they'll be on board.

What is your favorite thing about Cleveland?  What I love most about Cleveland is probably the passion that people in this area have for their city. There's a sense of pride you feel from people living and working in Cleveland and even those who have moved away.
