Boutique PR Agency
AWARD WINNING. FEMALE OWNED. MOMS.
Bettie Bomb is a boutique PR agency specializing in hospitality,
travel, lifestyle, consumer goods, and non-profit.
Let us tell your story to the world.
Laura & Rebecca met in their early 20s at their first job in the Chicago PR industry. They became fast friends over their love of coffee, healthy eating & home workout DVDs. Shortly after, Rebecca launched Bettie Bomb, a Chicago PR & marketing firm, while Laura went on to work for multiple top agencies in Chicago.
15+ years, two husbands named Mike, five kids, five pups, and MANY clients later, they’ve made their casual conversation of ‘hey, we should work together someday’ a reality by joining forces. These ladies regrouped & reinvented a bit, taking Bettie Bomb from a one-woman show to a duo act!
35+ Years of Combined Experience
With over 35 years of combined industry between Rebecca and Laura in the PR & Marketing industry, Bettie Bomb has built a successful track record creating and executing public relations strategies for hospitality, lifestyle, philanthropy, tourism, and many other niches.
