Michelle Krebs Levy is the founder and CEO of The Sixth Point, an independent, nondenominational Atlanta Jewish community for young professionals. After graduating from the University of Georgia in 2002 with a degree in psychology, Levy worked as program director for Hillel at the University of North Carolina, then as the marketing and events manager for the nonprofit Camp Twin Lakes. In 2010 she earned her M.B.A. from Georgia State University.

An Atlanta native, she spent 15 summers at Camp Barney Medintz and was involved in BBYO growing up. She became a BBG chapter adviser in 2012, earning the international David Bitker Unsung Hero BBG Adviser of the Year Award at the BBYO International Convention in Atlanta in 2015. A member of 2014’s 40 Under 40, Levy lives in Brookhaven with her husband, Rich, son, Dylan, and dog, Max.

“It can be difficult to be a young professional in Atlanta these days,” she said. “The city is so spread out, traffic is a nightmare, and, therefore, many of our neighborhoods have become insular. It is often challenging to make new friends, especially if you are single and/or new to Atlanta. That’s one of many reasons why The Sixth Point exists, to help build a community for those who don’t feel a part of one.”
