MEET AN ASSOCIATE: Michelle Clemente


Hailing from Long Island, Michelle “always had a feeling” she would work in advertising. As a student at the University of Maryland College Park, she ...interned at several GroupM agencies, including MEC, Xaxis and her eventual home—Mindshare.

“My favorite part about working in advertising is all the creativity in the industry and the different people you get to meet and work with,” Michelle said. “You’re always meeting someone new or trying something new, whether it be in the office or outside the office at a media event.”

Michelle confessed to two “guilty pleasures”—shoe shopping and binge-watching “Shameless” and “The Mindy Project.” But her favorite hobby is traveling the world. “In total I have been to 21 countries and hope to explore more,” she said.

In between the globetrotting, she might return to school for a master’s in business or marketing. “Since I graduated last year from college,” she said, “my one goal has been to continue to learn and grow.”

Learning and growing—we love that at Mindshare.
