Where are they Now – Sarah Carrier (OH 2012)
WHERE ARE THEY NOW: After graduating, Sarah Carrier (OH 2012) enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts/Law at Monash University. She completed 2 years of the course before switching to a Bachelor of Arts/Science, which was one of the best decisions she has ever made… she met her partner!. During her degree, Sarah had the opportunity to study abroad, which included learning about the refugee experience in Vietnam and Indonesia, and the reconciliation process in post-conflict Rwanda and South Africa. She completed Honours in Psychology and is currently completing a PhD in Clinical Neuropsychology and hopes to finish (“finally!”) later this year.
Sarah’s PhD research focuses on the non-pharmacological management of agitation during early recovery after traumatic brain injury and she has published several research papers in this area. Clinically, Sarah works at Epworth Research as a Project Manager where she conducts cognitive assessments with patients who have sustained an acquired brain injury. After her PhD, Sarah hopes to balance working as both a clinical neuropsychologist and a researcher. She is incredibly passionate about supporting people with neurological conditions.
On a personal note, Sarah has kept up her running and triathlon training from her Haileybury days, with her proudest achievement being completing a Half Ironman earlier this year!
Awesome effort on the study and home front, Sarah! See you soon at your Class of 2012 10-year reunion on Friday, May 13.
