Quality Friend: Family by Family

Working on Kaurna Land

Sarah works on the Family by Family project. She has joined the team as a Quality Friend, a role that involves chatting with families and giving them a voice in maintaining and improving quality practice. 

Sarah’s background is in public education and non-profit organisations (both paid and voluntary). She is first and foremost a mother, as well as a proud Sharing Family in the Family by Family network support program. Working at TACSI allows Sarah to help create real, long-lasting social change to systems, organisations, families and individuals, from the ground up. 

A passionate advocate of giving a voice to those who aren’t being heard, Sarah can find the teacher in everyone, and her superpower is recognising what people were meant to teach the world and what lessons we could learn from them. She’s known for her authenticity and how she empowers others to use their experience, strength and voice as a source of wisdom that others can benefit from. 

Sarah strives to cultivate an environment of authenticity that enables her family to be the best versions of themselves, recognise their own strengths, and use them to better society, and to help other families around her do the same. When Sarah’s not at work, she has her eyes on her son, her feet on the Earth, her hands in the kitchen, her nose in a book and her head in the clouds.


Teaching degree and a diploma in teaching English as another language.

At TACSI, diversity and inclusion is more than a statement; equality and accessibility are guiding principles embedded in everything we do. We strongly believe that it’s the collective sum of all our communities differences, life experiences, and knowledge that enables both ourselves and our partners to come together to tackle complex social issues. That’s why we’re committed to having a diverse team made up of people with diverse skills from all backgrounds, including First Nations peoples, LGBTIQ+, mature-age people, and people with visible and non-visible disabilities, regardless of sex, sexuality or gender identity.
