Victoria Kolar grew up the oldest of two in the Northwest Indiana town of Highland. After high school, she moved to Chicago to attend DePaul University, completing a BA in Communications and Latin Studies. She remained in the city, working for boutique PR agencies while contributing thoughts and articles to local and national media outlets, before accepting the role of Director of Marketing and PR for Marshall Pierce & Company. She handled all public relations and marketing efforts for the luxury retailer, culminating in a successful store opening on Michigan Avenue. Ready for another challenge, she packed her bags for Los Angeles to accept the position as Marketing and Public Relations Manager for Michael B. Jewelry.
