Vice President, Los Angeles Office
Michelle Cho is Vice President of the Los Angeles office for The HSUS.
Cho is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Los Angeles office's Hollywood Outreach, Animal Content in Entertainment (ACE), Membership Services, and Special Events departments, where her experience in production and media management will serve to bring the vital message of animal protection in front of an ever-evolving audience.
Cho and her staff interact with compassionate and influential members of the entertainment community, members and supporters, animal advocates, and the public at large with the goal of cultivating opportunities to further The HSUS's mission: to celebrate animals and confront cruelty.
Before joining The HSUS in September 2013, Cho served as Associate Director of Communications at PETA—where she spearheaded hundreds of high-profile campaigns with influential celebrities from the world of the arts, film, television, sports, and music—leading to countless victories for animals who suffer on factory farms, in the fur trade, for cosmetics, and more. Cho considers herself the embodiment of the adage "be the change you wish to see in the world."
Cho graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts degree in entertainment and media management. Born in DeKalb, Ill., Cho now resides in Studio City, Calif., and has plans to adopt a dog (or two!) in the very near future.
