Sarah had a long career in telecommunications starting at Vodafone and working her way up through the company to a National Relationship Management role looking after major accounts for over a decade before a move from NSW to the sunny Gold Coast led her to transition to a new career in the not for profit sector.
Sarah spent a couple of years as a State Manager for another telecommunications company on arrival in Queensland and was part of the team that launched Woolworths mobile in Australia before transitioning to the not for profit sector.
Working with the Bible Society, Sarah oversaw all of the strategic partnerships for Queensland, including large partnerships with both community groups and Christian schools. It was these partnerships that enabled her to start a Youth Advocacy and Empowerment Forum across the state with representatives from a wide array of different schools.
It was during this time that Sarah’s passion for empowering youth was reignited. Having spent many years as a Junior Rugby League coach and President in NSW, Sarah has seen the importance of teaching and empowering children at an early age to make informed choices around their health, and the way that those choices shape a young person’s future.
Sarah was delighted at the opportunity to be part of the Life Education Queensland team, having been an alumni herself and not forgetting the impact Life Education and Healthy Harold had on her as a young person. She is committed to be part of a team that champions the delivery of programs that help to empower and positively impact Queensland children.
