Meet the Mental Team

Michelle Wright / Account Manager

Michelle brings our team over 20 years of marketing experience in project management, publicity, and digital marketing.  Relocating from Nashville, to the central coast, Michelle brings a unique perspective to her role with Mental Marketing.  Spending years traveling the country and the globe with music clients, she is seasoned at juggling travel and event details.  During her years with Sony Entertainment she planned VIP film screenings, managed promotional tours, and played an important key account management role with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Michelle later joined global PR firm, Rogers & Cowan and facilitated publicity on film sets, managed publisher relationships, and managed talent media trips.   Her cross section of experiences led her to the nonprofit world as she became the Marketing/PR Specialist for a foundation based on the central coast.  Here, she enjoyed her role in pouring into the central coast by contributing to the arts, wildlife, and event scene. Woven throughout her various opportunities, building strategic partnerships has been critical. Whether pairing artists with worldwide humanitarian organization, Compassion International, or an arts foundation with the California Mid-State Fair, joining forces like this strengthens the brands. Most recently, Michelle managed digital marketing campaigns that connected consumers directly to authors, artists, causes, and films.  Hobbies: Michelle enjoys exploring and photographing the central coast while raising her 3 children with her husband of 15 years.
