Introduced to world politics at the age of 15 while spending an exchange year abroad in Germany, Sarah brought home suitcases full of European clothes and the realization that local issues can have global consequences. 

Sarah continued to hone her love of politics and in 2007 she walked in to the British Columbia Legislature where she began her political career for the B.C. Liberal Government. She worked for a variety of Minister’s in the portfolios of child care, agriculture, economic development and advanced education.

Sarah moved to Fort McMurray in the fall of 2012 to be closer to her partner and take on leading a non-profit dedicated to increasing leadership capacity in the community. In 2013, the boyfriend became a husband, a home was purchased, a puppy joined the family and Sarah joined the private sector in the fields of stakeholder relations and teaching before starting Tall Poppies PR.

Tall Poppies PR offers its clients the opportunity to tell unique stories through strategic written and graphic content development. Giving back is a key part of who Tall Poppies PR is which is why The 10% Rule exists. For every project Tall Poppies PR is hired for, 10% of the project time is given back to individual women and women's groups that need public relations assistance. 

Sarah currently sits on the local boards of provincial and federal political parties and Calgary's Ask Her. She also has a personal lifestyle blog called She Stole My Style.
