Sarah McQuillan has served the clients of Kairos Government Affairs since 2015 and brings both political and public relations expertise to the firm. After cutting her teeth in the lobbying sphere, Sarah now manages communications for the firm and oversees operation of its independent expenditure political action committee. In this role she leverages her keen understanding of the political landscape and experience across both digital and traditional media to craft strategic messaging and implement insightful communications measures.
Previously Sarah bolstered the firm’s advocacy efforts by meeting with lawmakers and key staff, tracking legislation and monitoring committee activities. Her constant presence at the legislature paired with her deep knowledge of the legislative process enabled the firm to act upon new information immediately and arm clients with legislative updates as they occurred.
In addition to her PAC management and lobbying efforts, Sarah has extensive experience planning and coordinating events, including fundraising efforts on behalf of political action committees and 501(c)(4) organizations. She also organized grassroots advocacy days at the legislature on behalf of clients and helped them plan legislative briefings and receptions.
Sarah received a Bachelor of Arts in media and journalism with a second major in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
