Erica Zazo

Media Relations Specialist

Erica Zazo, Walker Sands

Erica works to advance the awareness and brand stature of her B2B technology clients through media outreach and relationship building among industry reporters. Alongside her team, Erica develops topical, newsworthy angles that have successfully landed opportunities for her clients at various top-tier publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post and various trade publications.

Prior to joining Walker Sands, she worked in both corporate affairs and as a public relations and marketing coordinator, out of Austin and Fort Worth, Texas. 

Erica graduated from the Michigan State University School of Journalism with a degree in broadcast journalism and specializations in public relations and connected learning.

If you're looking for Erica outside of the office, you likely won't find her, as she's probably getting lost somewhere in the woods. And if she could have it her way, she'd spend more nights sleeping outdoors than in -- on a tent floor, of course.

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

I’d like to answer this for you...but first, coffee.

Spicy tuna rolls are my JAM!

If you could live anywhere else in the world where would it be?

New Zealand. Specifically, a small town at the tip of the south island called Picton - such a beautiful place!
