Meredith Siemens '05 Among Charleston, SC's 'Forty Under 40'

August 24, 2015

Meredith H. Siemens, a 2005 graduate of DePauw University, is among the "Forty Under 4)' featured in South Carolina's Charleston Regional Business Journal. Siemens is executive director, public relations and communications, for South Carolina Federal Credit Union.

"I have always tried to seize the opportunity to leap and sort out the landing plan in flight," she tells the publication. "Until you are a bit uncomfortable, it can be very difficult to grow."

Siemens offers this advice to the next generation of public relations executives: "Time is the only asset you can fully manage but never own -- spend it wisely."
