Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Michelle Labovitz knew she always wanted to work with people. It wasn’t until she interned at a clothing boutique in high school that she realized her potential to pursue a career in fashion public relations.
Michelle attended the University of Georgia (#GoDawgs) where she majored in Fashion Merchandising and was an active member of Sigma Delta Tau, among other campus organizations. Throughout her years in college, Michelle worked in fashion public relations agencies in both the U.S. and London, and eventually went on to complete two internships with Harper’s Bazaar in New York City.
Upon graduating in 2013, Michelle moved to New York City and worked in the public relations department at a luxury Italian fashion house. After over three years working with top-tier mens and women fashion magazines and traveling around the country to produce events on behalf of the brand, Michelle decided it was time to embrace her southern roots and move back to Atlanta.
Upon arriving in Atlanta, Michelle worked at a public relations agency that specialized in home and interiors products. It didn’t take long for Michelle to realize she wanted to jump into lifestyle, food, and hospitality public relations. Enter M-Squared Public Relations, where Michelle is currently an account executive.
Although Michelle no longer lives in New York City, she still loves to work in a fast-paced environment and explore innovative ways to introduce clients to the scene. She enjoys being around friends and family, and loves exploring all there is to do in Atlanta.
