Maggie Speaks knows the importance of teamwork. Her 10+ years of experience in sports – from youth to professional levels – has taught her the value of achieving goals and overcoming obstacles. Hailing from the small town of Camden, South Carolina, where athletics plays a key role in the tight-knit community, Maggie grew up a competitor involved in athletics. She brings her competitive drive to the NP Strategy team with the goal of compelling clients to be the best in their respective industries.
Prior to joining the NP Strategy team, Maggie dedicated the majority of her life to volleyball, playing at the high school, collegiate and professional levels. She graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in communications and public relations. She played four years on the Women’s Volleyball Team, where she received several impressive accolades and was named captain in her final two years as a member of the Wolfpack.
After graduating from NC State, Maggie played professional volleyball in Thessaloniki, Greece where she was a member of the pro team Makedones-Axiou. She also represented the United States at the World Universiade in Taipei, Taiwan in August 2017, as well as at the Binh Dien Cup in Tam Ky, Vietnam in May. Soon after, Maggie decided to hang up her jersey to reconnect with the Carolinas and build a career in public relations. While Maggie may no longer be setting hitters on the volleyball court, she’ll certainly be setting clients up for success in the office and beyond.
