Sarah graduated from the Oxford School of Drama in 1991 and after years of living out of a bag as a touring actor, she went into stage management in the West End on The Buddy Holly Story. However, her need to perform came calling again and she landed the job as a BBC TV continuity announcer (April 1999 – November 2010). She was primarily a BBC Two voice but occasionally turned up on BBC One. She could also be heard on BBC Radio 5 Live promotions. She was the launch voice of BBC Knowledge (June 1999).
Sarah appeared in front of the camera, with fellow BBC announcer Phil Vowels on Ready, Steady, Cook (season 15, episode 107).
In December 2009, Sarah became an audio describer for the visually impaired at The Lighthouse Theatre in Poole, Dorset. In October 2011, she took up a role as scriptwriter and continuity announcer for the PBS America channel. She has also done some freelance presenting on BBC Radio Solent (2012). She was the voice of BBC Store online promotion (2015 – 2017).
