LYDIA RUSSO

JUNIOR publicist - chicago


 

After earning a Master of Integrated Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University, Lydia channeled her passion for writing and media into a career in public relations. During stints at global and boutique agencies including Weber Shandwick, Caren Joan PR, and Skirt PR, Lydia served clients in a variety of industries- from well-known national consumer brands to local hospitality and lifestyle concepts- bringing publicity strategies to life through targeted media relations, influencer engagement, and event execution. As a recent addition to the H2 PR team, Lydia is excited to merge her keen eye for a newsworthy hook with her enthusiasm for Chicago’s ever changing culinary scene.

In addition to her master’s degree, Lydia holds a Bachelor of Science in Apparel Design from Iowa State University. A resident of Chicago for nearly a decade, Lydia enjoys exploring the city’s eclectic mix of neighborhoods, reading, practicing yoga, and anything involving cats, wine, or a combination of both.
