One of her career highlights happened four years ago when Sarah landed a job with Elaine Paige on her 2013 tour of Australia, Asia and New Zealand. Sarah worked as Elaine’s personal dresser, which provided her with a unique experience working closely with one of the biggest international stars of the stage.
