Public Relations

Claire McMillan

VP Public Relations

Claire is currently in her third year of business majoring in marketing. After attending the 2021 virtual conference, Claire knew that this was an event she wanted to continue to be involved with. The conference further piqued her interest in women empowerment, and she can’t wait to work with the 2022 executive team to further spread confidence and empowerment in women. She is also a member of the Alberta JDCW marketing team.


Outside of school, Claire enjoys going out for drinks with friends, as well as exploring the YEG food scene. When she’s not exploring the city, you can find her at home watching any and all reality tv. Claire is looking forward to putting on a great in-person (fingers crossed) conference for all the delegates this year!

Maria Skotheim

Public Relations Director

Maria is currently in her third year at the Alberta School of Business with a major in Marketing and minor in Operations Management. Alongside her degree she is pursuing a certificate in sustainability. After attending the NEW 2020 conference she was blown away! She has a strong passion for empowering and uplifting the women around her.  She is so excited to be on the 2021 executive team and play a role in executing and planning such an amazing and inclusive conference. 


When she is not working hard to create an amazing Public Relations portfolio you can find her taking too many pictures of her cat with an oat milk latte in hand or perfecting her Pinterest mood boards!
