Business Analyst by trade and London-based freelance writer and blogger. Passionate about well-being, life change, and personal growth.
After a fulfilling 11-year career in Business Analysis, Sara, a London-based mum of 3 boys changed careers to pursue her passion for writing. Slightly addicted to reading and learning, she now works as a freelance writer. When she's not rushing around on the school run or writing, she blogs at www.mindyourmamma.com. This is her space on the internet where she shares advice with other mums on overcoming stress and overwhelm, with a focus on slowing down and living more intentionally and mindfully. These days, she particularly likes to hang out on Instagram (instagram.com/mindyourmamma)
