Sarah was born and raised in England and Hong Kong. She has an LLB Degree and PCLL Postgraduate course from the City University of Hong Kong. She was admitted as a solicitor in the High Court of HKSAR.

Though much of her work was in family law, probate, and civil litigation, she prefers to concentrate her career in Wills and Estate Planning and the myriad of law matters that it encompasses, and concentrate doing so, not in a law firm but a Will Writing and Estate Planning firm. Though an admitted lawyer, she does not put herself out as a lawyer but as a Will Writer.

Sarah also travels regularly to Singapore meeting clients and consulting on their needs and assists clients with Wills based in Bangkok, Saigon, Kuala Lumpur, and others.

Outside of work, Sarah enjoys outdoor activities especially hiking. She loves travelling with her partner and occasionally petsitting for pet owners. Sarah speaks fluent English and Cantonese.
