Our Staff

Sarah Sorola

Senior Programs Officer

After working casually with Philanthropy Australia from June 2019, Sarah permanently joined the team in February 2020 as Senior Programs Officer. Prior to joining PA, Sarah worked within the aged care and accounting industries providing support services including administration, human resources and executive assistance.

In her new capacity as Senior Programs Officer, Sarah will be responsible for the coordination and delivery of PA’s national programs such as our National Conference, Summit, Australian Philanthropy Awards, study tours and professional learning program. 

When Sarah’s not hard at work you’ll find her teaching Pilates, cooking, hanging out with her rescue dog and studying and smashing out essays, as she’s just a few months shy of completing her Master of International Relations at University of Melbourne.  She also hails from the Mighty Texas – hence her nickname ‘Tex’!
