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.

Sarah currently sits on the board of Calgary's Ask Her. She also has a personal lifestyle blog called She Stole My Style and is starting a podcast called Motherhood and Other Things which will be launch in the summer of 2018.
