Account Supervisor

We are what we eat and really what we consume on all levels, so let us consume love in the form of food, thoughts, and feelings.

Lauren Von Der Pool

Originally from Arizona, Makenna Lepowsky moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in public relations. Now after 5 years of living in LA, the city checks so many boxes for her, both personally and professionally, due to its charm, vibrant communities, and trendy dining destinations.

Having worked for several full-service talent and lifestyle PR agencies in LA, Makenna has quickly climbed the ladder in the industry, becoming an established professional with a passion for thoughtful messaging, compelling stories, and creative collaboration. Keeping her fingers on the pulse of all things media and pop culture, Makenna uses her eminent understanding of media relations, marketing and luxury brand building to help organizations and individuals discover their voice. She has proven success in creating large-scale press plans, digital/social campaigns and influencer strategies to drive brand awareness for national hospitality groups, lifestyle and fashion brands, as well as chefs, cocktail personalities, entrepreneurs and creators.

In her free time, Makenna enjoys visiting one of the many standout Mexican, Thai, Italian and American restaurants in LA that best represent the city’s incredible dining culture. Like any Angeleno, she relishes in the year-round sunshine, visiting Instagrammable coffee shops and perusing farmers’ markets on any day of the week!
