Sarah left her first career choice of marketing and customer communications in the early ‘90s. Since then, she has developed extensive experience in private sector development across sub Saharan Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and the Pacific. Her broad experience extends to working for a community based organisation in Lesotho, as an Enterprise Development Advisor for DFID in Uganda and the Caribbean, as the Team Leader of a multi donor funded project in Tanzania, and as a consultant working in a variety of countries on short and medium term assignments.

After working closely with the Springfield Centre for many years, she formally joined in January 2011. Until recently Sarah was based in Abuja where, among other assignments, she worked on the design of two different DFID-funded market development programmes, the first focused on developing rural markets in Northern Nigeria, and the second on developing the private education market in Lagos. Sarah is now based in Washington DC.
