Sara works on initiatives for The Coca-Cola Company and supports our growing healthcare practice. She enjoys researching complex topics and mapping out creative approaches to advance her clients.
Her move to Atlanta came after two years of award-winning work at MP&F Strategic Communications in Nashville. There her clients included the U.S. Department of Labor’s Job Corps program, the Nashville Public Education Foundation and HCA ‘s Tristar Division of healthcare facilities.
During her college years, Sara focused on rhetorical studies, thinking that public policy and the law would be her future path. Her first internship was for the Democratic National Convention when her hometown of Charlotte was the host city. This experience threw her into the details of event management and gave her access to political luminaries who are still making news today.
Sara’s second internship was with North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper, who later became governor. She spent the summer in Raleigh tracking important legislation and working with the director of communications to stage news conferences and write media releases.
After college, Sara moved to Washington, D.C. to become a public policy assistant for Arnall Golden Gregory, LLP. It was here that she realized she was way more interested in public policy than the law. Her year on The Hill covering legislative developments for the firm’s daily newsletters honed her writing skills and cemented her interest in public relations.
Sara graduated from Vanderbilt University. She also spent a semester studying sociology at New Zealand’s Victoria University, where she got a crash course in surviving earthquakes (Two measuring 6.5 and 6.6 on the magnitude scale).
As an avid outdoors enthusiast and yogi, Sara loves living on Atlanta’s Beltline. She and her fiancé are busy gearing up for a June 2020 wedding.
