Elizabeth Robbins-Sabourin

Elizabeth Robbins-Sabourin

Account Director

Elizabeth learned that “there’s no place like home” when she returned to Franco after four years building her PR and social media experience on the corporate and agency sides. A seasoned professional, Elizabeth has a passion for public relations and relationship building.

With a diverse background, Elizabeth is a jack of all trades, bringing a wealth of knowledge to the consumer team at Franco. Whether she’s brainstorming new ideas or meeting new people, Elizabeth strives to put the fun — and results — into public relations.

Prior to returning to Franco, Elizabeth was an account supervisor at FleishmanHillard, where she supported the Chevrolet social media account, working on strategy and consumer engagement for performance and trucks.

Elizabeth’s education is a house divided with a Master of Arts degree in public relations from Michigan State University and a Bachelor of Arts degree with a dual major in psychology and communications from the University of Michigan. Her loyalty lies with the Wolverines and you’ll often see her sporting maize and blue around the office during football season.

In addition to her work at Franco, Elizabeth is an adjunct faculty member at the Art Institute of Michigan in Novi and Troy, where she teaches a variety of classes in the fashion department including public relations, event planning and business writing.

Elizabeth is a strong supporter of the Detroit PR community, serving on the board of the Detroit chapter of the Public Relations Society of America and as the chair of its programming committee.

You may hear people refer to Elizabeth as “The Duchess” because in her spare time, she runs her own lifestyle blog, DetroitDuchess.com, where she shares fashion, beauty, travel and shopping tips.
