Sarah trained as an actor at Webber Douglas and worked in theatre, radio, television and film for over a decade. Her particular interest in voice led her to undertake the MA Voice Studies at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, for which she was awarded the Jeremy Brett Scholarship.
As a communication skills trainer, Sarah works with a wide range of individuals and groups from the public and private sectors at all organisational levels, from graduate development to executive coaching.

Sarah regularly works within the field of education and founded the first ever voice department within a secondary school in 2013. She frequently works with young people, particularly girls, in association with charities such as Let Girls Learn, launched by Barack and Michelle Obama and Children in Need. Sarah consults for schools and colleges and advises on the development of vocal and communication skills for personal, social, educational and career growth. She trains teachers, head teachers and educationalists and is heavily involved in a variety of programmes encouraging women to apply for and take up leadership positions within education.
Additionally, Sarah works in further education with students and academics of all levels.
