Sara McCarthy is a problem solver by nature, with experience in communications, client relationship management, sponsorships, event planning and marketing. Her multi-faceted background helps her connect with clients across numerous industries to understand and address their needs.
Throughout the last decade, Sara has worked primarily in the legal industry. She coordinated communications, social media and digital content for Nexsen Pruet, as well as working part time for NP Strategy since 2017. Prior to joining the NP family, she served in a dual event planning and sponsorship role for the Mecklenburg County Bar in North Carolina. The Bar serves a membership of more than 5,000 attorneys, and she led multiple committees and managed a slate of sponsorships and events. McCarthy also ran the Bar’s “Sections,” a professional development and networking function determined by area of practice.
A true Carolina girl, Sara was born and raised in North Carolina before heading south to earn her B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of South Carolina, where she was a member of the Honors College and a McNair Scholar. She returned to Charlotte, NC after graduation and now serves NP Strategy’s clients in the Carolinas and beyond.
In her free time, Sara loves exploring her city, learning about Charlotte’s newest offerings – whether that means restaurants, coffee shops, breweries or entertainment. She lives in Plaza Midwood with her husband, Keith and their enormous Great Dane, Max. She also enjoys opportunities to give back through volunteer efforts and her church.
