Sarah Muller
Sandy Bay, TAS

Hi, I'm Sarah, I'm a fun, energetic, caring individual who has had plenty of experience looking after children. I've spent many years babysitting, coaching gymnastics, nannying, and working as classroom support. I'm originally from Alice Springs, and moved to Tassie for university, where I am studying law, with aspirations to go into family law. I find working with children to be highly rewarding, and I love seeing the joy on a child's face when they achieve a goal or have fun trying something new. I enjoy reading, and playing board games, but I am also quite sporty and find active activities very fun too. I aspire to be friendly, outgoing, patient, and kind in all aspects of life. I am also comfortable with pets, being a person who grew up with cats, dogs, and fish, but also worked in a cattery and boarding kennels back in Alice Springs. I can provide references if needed. Feel free to get in contact🙂
