Getting to know Sarah

If you were not a lawyer what job would you do?

Definitely something involving looking after animals.

If you were given a day off work where would we find you?

Catching up with a treasured family member or friend.

What can you do that no one else in the office can do?

I can say “I love you” in 12 different languages!

If you could go back in history to a specific date or time, what would it be?

A time when all of my grandparents were still here, so I could have a chat and a cup of tea with each of them one more time.

Where in the world would you most like to visit?

There are so many places I’d love to go to,  but I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights.
