Sarah Newston Occupational Therapist


Sarah is an Occupational Therapist from Scotland.
She first met Fiona Lilley as a student when she came to New Zealand for a placement, and immediately fell in love with the country and the organisation. After graduating from Glasgow Caledonian University with a BSc Honours degree, Sarah worked in a busy hospital in central Scotland and gained a wide range of experience in various areas. However her passion has always been to help children build their confidence and achieve their full potential in school and beyond.

In her spare time she was providing private occupational therapy to children who were having difficulty with school work and handwriting, where the service was not easily available to them.
She has now come back to work with Fiona as a New Zealand registered Occupational Therapist, and is enjoying being able to do what she loves full time. .
