Pats on the back from the past.

With a broad background, Michelle Young earns the praise of the successful people she has worked with and for.

“Michelle is not only full of energy and brilliant ideas, but she also knows how to execute. I had the honor of presenting alongside Michelle at a national social media marketing conference. It was a joy to collaborate with her and build off of her enthusiasm. She is a rockstar!”
Kelly Bennett
Social Media Manager, University of Cincinnati
“Michelle was the PR Director when I attended Santa Clara University and played Division I basketball. It was through her mentorship that I found my love for broadcasting. She had the unique ability to provide me with the right guidance, emotional support and wisdom. She saw beyond the basketball star and provided me with opportunities to nurture a passion of mine off the court by creating “Long Walks With Jared.” She is amazing!”
Jared Brownridge
Professional Basketball Player, Talk-show Host, Santa Clara ‘17
“I have relied on Michelle Young’s expertise in both media strategy and execution for over a dozen years. She knows this industry inside and out, which has kept her at the cutting edge of this dynamic and ever-evolving field. Her passion for the work, the people involved and the cause is precisely what you hope for in a media partner. When crafting media strategy she is unafraid of being bold in her vision. She delivered results well beyond my expectations. I am happy to endorse her for any person or firm seeking a more prominent profile in this increasingly challenging media environment.”

“As I transitioned from collegiate All-American to US Olympian to Fashion Expert and Social Media influencer, Michelle has been there every step of the way. Her work ethic is second to none. How else does a Hammer thrower (have you even heard of it?) get into Sports Illustrated, on the front page of the New York Times and photographed by Annie Leibovitz and Richard Schatz? She is innovative, creative and responsive to the evolving needs of my brand and media trends. I am confident her strategic approach in developing fresh ideas will continue to increase my brand visibility and social media presence.”
Dawn Ellerbe

Marybeth Jacoby

“I have been in college athletics for almost 20 years and Michelle Young is one of the best communicators, best innovators, and simply one of the best I have worked with. She has a great understanding of people and connects them to work in a united front. Her passion to help others is unparalleled and her work ethic is the high standard she holds for herself. Michelle Young is simply someone you want to learn from.”
Dustin Kerns
Head Basketball Coach, Appalachian State
“We were fortunate to be able to work with Michelle when we came to the University of South Carolina 20 years ago and still keep in touch to this day. We have always valued her opinions, insight and expertise. With her creative energy and initiative, she has a great ability to see opportunities when they arise and bring new ideas to the table. She always does well to combine this with all of her experience into an effective action plan.”
