Plenty of newspaper experience
WHITSUNDAY Coast Guardian and Whitsunday Times advertising sales representative Sarah Storck-Ogilvie has been in the newspaper industry for more than 18 years.
Originally from Lismore in NSW, Sarah has been working at The Guardian for 11-years after spending six years with The Whitsunday Times.
Six weeks ago, the company that owns the Whitsunday Times took over the Whitsunday Coast Guardian, meaning Sarah now works for the region’s two newspapers.
Sarah said she “fell into advertising” in the Whitsundays after initially starting her career at Laguna Quays resort at the front desk.
“I like meeting people and helping them create campaigns to promote their businesses,” she said.
Sarah and her family moved to Airlie Beach when she was just 12-years-old after the family took over the Colonial Court.
She said that more than two decades in the region had helped her build relation- ships in the community and enabled her to perform her role at The Guardian so successfully.
“I know a lot of people in Airlie and I know a lot of people in Proserpine,” she said.
Outside of work, Sarah and her partner Gus Ogilvie enjoy camping and going fishing with Agnes Waters being a favourite escape.
Sarah and Gus have been together for 18 years and tied the knot in Hawaii two years ago in a private ceremony among family and friends.
The couple’s family consists of two dogs – Ellie-Mae and Pepper.
What do you do to chill out?
I spend a lot of time in our swim spa.
Where’s the best place to eat in the Whitsundays?
Hubby and I love going to KC’s Bar and Grill.
Last movie you saw in the cinema?
I’m a horror buff. The last horror movie I watched that was good was The Conjuring.
What do you do for work?
Media consultant with the Whitsunday Coast Guardian and the Whitsunday Times.
Plans for the next 12 months?
We’re doing a cruise next year, going from Brisbane to New Zealand. I’d love to see the Proserpine community thriving again.
Live in the now and be thankful for what you have.
Any last words?
