Kathy Bryja, Senior Publicist

Before joining the team at Heron, Kathy worked at a boutique PR agency in Chicago for over three years, where she focused on lifestyle and restaurant clientele. During this time, she built relationships with local media, and secured press coverage with national outlets including The Travel Channel, Food Network, Town & Country, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, USA Today and Inside Edition.

A daughter of two immigrant parents, Kathy grew up with the mentality that hard work and perseverance will help you achieve anything you set your mind to. Kathy received her Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from DePaul University, and credits her favorite professor for making her first fall in love with the industry. On the weekends, you can find Kathy at concerts singing along to her favorite artists, hanging out with her 16-year-old pooch, exploring new cities with her old college roommates and crying during every episode of This Is Us.
