As the Director of Public Relations & Special Events, Sarah Nichols is responsible for overseeing Able SC’s communications, marketing strategies, and special events to help build relationships with external partners and the media and strengthen organizational messaging. Sarah also facilitates professional trainings and talks on accessible communications, diversity in the media, intersectionality, and digital communications and advocacy. You can recognize her as one of the voices behind Able SC’s social media and e-blasts or the person running around our events with a smile on her face! Sarah has a passion for storytelling and is excited to be able to share the incredible work of her colleagues and the disability community with Columbia and South Carolina at large.
Sarah graduated summa cum laude from the University of South Carolina with a focus in public relations and English, and she channeled her passion for advocacy in previous positions with the Women’s Rights and Empowerment Network (WREN), Garnet & Black Magazine, and the Nickelodeon Theatre. When Sarah is not at work, she can be found taking her dog, June, to Soda City, dancing with Moving Body Dance Company, learning and practicing American Sign Language, visiting her family and friends in Charleston, or reading any book she can get her hands on.
