Sarah is a visitor experience specialist, skilled in all aspects of planning and delivering the visitor journey. She joined the Knepp team in September 2023 as Visitor Manager, looking after our camping, glamping and safari guests. Sarah is passionate about connecting people with special places, and previously spent 15 years with the National Trust.
She has a BA (Hons) in Business Studies from Manchester Metropolitan University where she grew up, and spent her early career working as a project and programme manager in the environmental consultancy sector.
During her ten years in Cornwall she developed a love of wild swimming and pilot gig racing, taking part in 5 World Championships on the Isles of Scilly. A Gig is a traditional wooden boat which ‘raced’ out to bring big ships safely into harbour, with the first Pilot on board receiving a handsome payment.
Her competitive streak can also be found at pub quizzes, where her specialist subject is 1980s pop music!
