Michelle Cho is Vice President of Celebrity and Entertainment Outreach for The HSUS.
Cho engages with influential public figures from the world of the arts, entertainment, film, television, music, and sports, to support the organization’s programs, campaigns, legislative priorities, and events. Her experience in celebrity campaign production and media management serve to bring the vital message of animal protection in front of an ever-evolving audience.
