The story of Michelle Wilmoth begins in Chicago, more than 20 years ago, where she began her career in public relations. Today, she continues to work in PR as PR Plus’s Senior Account Executive.
Over the course of her career, Michelle Wilmoth has worked in the entertainment, food & beverage, consumer, and nonprofit communities. Her career officially began at the Chicago development office of City of Hope, a world leader in the research and treatment of cancer and other serious diseases.
From that point, she took her career in a different direction… towards the world of live entertainment. Beginning her entertainment PR career, she worked in live theater and music representing Sesame Street Live, Bear in the Big Blue House Live, the renovation and opening of the Genesee Theatre in Chicago, and a variety of independent theatrical presentations while living in the Midwest.
For three years, Wilmoth considered her home on Broadway as the chief publicist for Broadway In Chicago, representing national tour launches including “Rock of Ages” and “Shrek the Musical”, resident productions “Wicked, “Billy Elliott” and “Jersey Boys,” and long list of touring shows.
Relocation to Las Vegas
Wilmoth continued her Broadway career when she moved to Las Vegas in 2011, following “Jersey Boys,” also working on the world-premiere of the hit show “Absinthe” and the opening of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
In 2014, she happily joined the PR Plus team, where she continues to work to this day. Not only does she get to continue her work in entertainment public relations, but she works in the world of restaurants, hospitality, and nonprofits.
Some of her current clients include:
- Honey Salt
- Buddy V’s Ristorante
- KAMU Ultra Karaoke
- Nacho Daddy
- The Space/Mondays Dark
- JW Marriott Las Vegas
- House of Blues Las Vegas
- Children’s Heart Foundation
Her Personal Life
When she’s not doing work with the number one Las Vegas PR firm, she enjoys spending time with her two dogs, Lilli and Bernice; brunching with friends; Pilates; and the occasional goat yoga session. Ask me about my goat yoga and pink hair. Also Michelle has never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
