She undertook her Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) in 2020 in the throes of COVID lockdowns, which bolstered the relevancy of her learning and meant working from home took on a whole new meaning!

Sarah is proudly based in Taranaki and believes strongly in regional collaboration and the might of learning from each other to improve understanding of an ethical communications profession.

Her introduction to words and telling stories came via her training as a journalist and the years she spent turning interviews into news and feature articles. 


She has been a PRINZ judge and is thrilled to be part of a Taranaki sub-committee with a vision to connect people and shine a spotlight on the best region in the country!

She’s also a Mum of two, an avid reader and her favourite app is Spotify – to curate the perfect soundtrack to her life. She’ll tell you her favourite band is The Smiths, but secretly it’s Enya.

Sarah has been at Powerco for the last four years and in her current role she provides strategic brand and content guidance.

She loves collaborating with people to create captivating and engaging content.
