Kathy Schaeffer and Associates, Inc.


Kathy Schaeffer and Associates, Inc. (KSA), winner of Publicity Club of Chicago’s 2010 Platinum Award, is a Chicago public relations firm specializing in issue-oriented public relations. We work with our clients – corporations, associations and not-for-profits – to create and implement effective strategies to help them achieve their communications goals.

Our work helps clients build public awareness, change public opinion, shape public policy and educate the public. Our expertise ranges from helping corporations build and manage their reputations to executing advocacy campaigns for associations and coalitions.

Smart. Passionate. Ingenious. It’s who we are; how we approach our work; what clients think of our ideas. 

We apply strategic thinking to everything we do. Whether we’re hired to generate local, regional or national media coverage to accompany a lobbying campaign or write new brochures and information kits for a new program or service, we apply a “quick study” attitude to design the most efficient and effective solutions to communications challenges. 

As a Chicago-based firm, we’ve established our niche, providing high quality strategic communications for clients with compelling messages in the public arena. Kathy Schaeffer, a former journalist and seasoned PR consultant, founded KSA in 1994.
