In 2020 she completed a two year internship with Dr Angela Cadogan (registered physiotherapy specialist in shoulders).
Sarah sits on the executive committee of the NZ Manipulative Physiotherapists Association. She also teaches the shoulder component of the NZMPA courses for physiotherapists.

She published research on the use of steroid injection in shoulder bursitis early this year. Sarah also works in a diagnostic role with shoulder specialist Mr. Alex Malone at St Georges Hospital.
