Plenty of news­pa­per ex­pe­ri­ence

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

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?

PROSER­PINE LO­CAL: The Whit­sun­day Coast Guardian's Sarah Storck-Ogilvie has more than 18-years ex­pe­ri­ence in the ad­ver­tis­ing game.
