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 checking out the hottest new restaurants and cocktail lounges around Chicago, exploring new cities with old friends, and updating her team on the latest ABC 20/20 episodes.
