If you were wondering what Sarah McCreary is up to post-NASF, Roll Call wrote a great story about her new role at Hamburger Co., a Democratic political and media consulting firm.
As communications director, Sarah will be working on the firm's branding, message development and web strategy efforts. She was an invaluable part of the NASF team and we wish her success in her new endeavors!
