Laura has been with 360 Media for more than 19 years, serving as Director of Operations for the past 14 years. She has lived in the metro Atlanta area from a very early age and holds two Bachelor of Arts degrees from Georgia State University – one in film and video production with a minor in journalism and another in public relations. In her free time, she enjoys springtime outdoors, spending time with her family (in Atlanta and New Orleans), watching TV + movies (and is not above binge-watching either) and discovering new ways to achieve a healthier mind, body + spirit.
Since founding 360 Media in 1996, Tara has become well-known as one of Atlanta’s foremost public relations and media mavens, having launched many of the city’s top events including Music Midtown and Peach Drop. Renowned events like these, plus her dedicated work ethic and overall knowledge of what works, makes her a prominent voice in Atlanta’s entertainment, lifestyle and hospitality industries. Prior to establishing 360 Media, she earned her stripes as a successful public relations practitioner in the music industry, heading up PR for notable companies including Ichiban Records, NMC Records and Concert Southern (now Live Nation Atlanta). In her spare time, Tara can be found indulging in Atlanta’s amazing culinary scene, spending quality time with family and friends (and her pup Morton), or traveling the globe.
