In 2005 she qualified as a legal executive and has worked mainly in the areas of criminal and civil litigation as well as family law.

In her time away from GQ Sarah enjoys spending time with her three adult children or at the beach, with or without her small scruffy dog. She is involved, in a voluntary capacity, with surf lifesaving in Taranaki, Hospice Taranaki and the Breast Cancer Foundation. Weekends will often find her up a ladder, paint brush in hand, as she slowly redecorates her house! She enjoys the local arts scene and is also something of a book worm, belonging to a local book group. She also enjoys swimming and riding her bike along the foreshore and sometimes further afield.
