Leah Bueno, APR

Account Manager

With wide-ranging public relations experience, Leah Saunders Bueno, APR, brings knowledge in areas such as real estate, tourism, government, and healthcare to her role with B2. Leah is experienced in developing campaign ideas to garner media interest while also thinking of ways to raise clients’ visibility beyond getting media coverage.

She has defined those skills throughout her career, especially during her time as PR and marketing manager with Hillsborough County government, where she managed a team that handled the public relations initiatives for over 30 county departments.

Leah also gained knowledge of the tourism industry while working at Visit Tampa Bay, where she coordinated visits by travel journalists to Hillsborough County to promote tourism in the area. While at Visit Tampa Bay, Leah also helped coordinate national and international media coverage of the International Indian Film Awards (IIFA), which were held in Tampa in 2014.

With B2, she focuses on work for real estate clients, including Colliers International, Crescent Communities and Lennar Homes. She also works with international restaurant consultant Revenue Management Solutions and the Prevent Needless Deaths awareness campaign, which aims to educate people on preventable child deaths.

Leah is a past chapter president of the Tampa Bay Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association and served on the board for six years. She also did volunteer public relations for the Edible Peace Patch Project, a nonprofit that builds and maintains educational gardens in Pinellas County.

Leah received a B.A. in advertising and public relations from the University of Central Florida.
