Sarah recently joined Freedom of Mind as Business Development Manager. She is also Visitor Experience Manager for The RWA, an art gallery and independent charity in Clifton, and has lived in Bristol for nine years. Prior to working in the arts Sarah worked for a number of years in higher education, and for The Students’ Union at UWE. It was here that she became inspired by the student movement, and its’ work to challenge stigma around mental health, something she wished had been talked about more openly throughout her education.
Sarah is passionate about supporting organisations to be more financially sustainable, and hopes to help Freedom of Mind plan for the next few years of its development. Sarah believes strongly in everyone playing a part in creating supportive, empowering and diverse communities, that allow for open and honest conversations about all aspects of wellbeing. During her down time she enjoys visiting galleries, yoga, trying out Bristol’s latest restaurants and travelling as much as she can.
