Government & Public Affairs Associate
Rounding out our team, McCartney brings enthusiasm and a strong understanding of journalism and media to Catalyst Public Affairs.
A graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Journalism and Mass Communications, McCartney is no stranger to the Capitol. Last year, she wrote numerous articles for the Nebraska News Service on topical issues of the session, ranging from county jail phone costs to internet sales tax. The result of her work was published in newspapers throughout the state.
McCartney also developed paper and online marketing campaigns for THREADS, a local Lincoln retailer, to generate sales and raise the company’s profile in the community. She designed numerous promotional materials such as newspaper and web ads, postcards, and holiday catalogs.
As a former journalist, she is a talented writer and storyteller, understands how to break down complex issues for a variety of audiences and we are excited to bring her skills to bear on behalf of our clients.
