Michele Mooney


Michele comes to Inspire PR Group with two decades of PR and communication experience. Most recently Michele was Vice President at Irvin PR, where she worked with numerous Columbus-based corporate and non-profit clients and community events. She has a history of working with many hospitality and food businesses, including North Market, Whole Foods Market, Worthington Farmers Market, The Olive Orchard and several hotels and restaurants.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, she attended Ohio University, and, after graduating, moved to Columbus for a publicity internship with the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association, then decided to make Columbus her home.
