In her role as a Federal Electorate Officer for Jennie George MP for 9 years (2001-2010), Sarah was required to work with a diverse range of constituents on an equally diverse range of matters.

Sarah works exceptionally well in a team environment but equally has no problem working independently and achieving required output without any supervision.
