She has appeared on television, radio shows, and podcasts. She is a homegrown business owner, nutritionist, certified therapist, writer, author, mother, lover.
If we want to get down to academic qualifications, Sarah has undergraduate degrees in public and environmental health and post graduate qualifications in women’s studies, nutrition and psychotherapy. Sarah was awarded her PhD from the University of Melbourne, post-doctoral research fellowship from the University of Queensland and was awarded an international scholarship from the University of Sydney. Her first book was released in 2009, Chemical Free Kids: Raising Healthy Children in a Toxic World, is a bestselling publication and has gone into its third reprint. One Bite at a Time: Reduce Toxic Exposure and Eat the World You Want was released in 2017 and her latest book is Forage Ferment Feast: Tales of Food and Family with Recipes for Restoring Gut Health, Connection, Healing and Wholeness was released in 2019. Sarah’s tertiary studies were guided by growing up on rural farms, her passion for the natural world and the healing properties of whole foods – plants, herbs, fats and oils – and her reverence and wonder of the human body and soul, which has that innate ability to heal and create creation itself.
Sarah founded Temptress Apothecary in 2019, a botanical enterprise that formulates wellness blends that are symbiotic with nature and that can be used in everyday ritual, reverence and pleasure in the home. Sarah also founded and is the owner and Director of the Sacred Women’s Way, an organisation that sits in part of a global remembering, a re-emergence of taking back womb consciousness and the ushering in of a new paradigm of awakening our divine feminine on the planet. She is currently, and will always, be guided and mentored by many wise women, continuing her own growth with teachers and supervisors in areas of herbalism, meditation, psychotherapy and breathwork. Sarah has professional association memberships with the Australian Counselling Association (ACA), International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT), Institute for Integrative Nutrition Health, and the Australian Centre for Meditation and Mindfulness.
