Sara McCarthy joins NP Strategy in the company’s Charlotte, North Carolina office as a Communications Specialist. McCarthy expands the North Carolina NP Strategy team of Senior Communications Advisor Erin Sanders, and Senior Advisor and Nexsen Pruet attorney Chris Kouri. Together they will  assist clients with message development, strategic communications, crisis management and media relations.

As a McNair Scholar, she obtained her B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of South Carolina, with honors from the South Carolina Honors College. Upon graduation, she moved to Charlotte, NC where she has worked for the better part of the last decade in the legal industry.

She worked with Nexsen Pruet’s Business Development team before joining the law firm’s strategic communications subsidiary, NP Strategy.

“Identifying challenges and problem solving in the professional sphere require a comprehensive communications approach, and I look forward to creating unique, targeted solutions for our clients,” said McCarthy. “We are living in a dynamic period, where the speed and reach of news and communications has never been greater. I’m proud to join the NP Strategy team as we partner with clients across the Carolinas and beyond.”
