Sarah has spent the last 16 years working in the financial services sector in both a consultancy and operational capacity. 
For the last 12 years, Sarah’s skills have been finely tuned as an AML and Sanctions implementation specialist, managing and leading teams working on Sanctions screening implementations, transaction monitoring strategy development and implementations, customer risk assessment right through to the day to management of teams working suspicious transaction alerts.  
Sarah has worked for SQA Consulting since January 2017, managing the Financial Crime Practice in Ireland, focusing primarily on the provision of assurance services, training and product development.  
Sarah’s previous operational roles means that she is all too familiar with regulator expectations and as such is consistently focused on ensuring Clients manage their risks appropriately.
