She has had her own boutique PR agency Tree Communications for the last 10 years specialising in travel, hospitality and events.
She launched a travel concierge business Sarah Stephens Escapes last year in the midst of the global pandemic, organising holidays for a niche demographic of people, so the only thing they needed to worry about was having the time of their lives.
She now assists with the travel element for destination weddings and luxury honeymoons too.
Her passion for travel helped her in the darkest of times when her eldest daughter passed away nearly 5 years ago and her son a year after that.
It was then she discovered that child loss is a major taboo still and not spoken about. She felt isolated and alone.
Those she told about it weren’t sure how to react. She realised something needed to change. So she started a blog to help those also suffering to feel less alone and those who weren’t to be able to relate to friend or contacts better. She has raised over £50k for Alder Hey Children’s Hospital for her daughter’s legacy. She reframed her loss to motivate and inspire her to push forward to achieve more for her children's’ legacy. She is planning a charity and a podcast.
Travel and her love of exploring helped her through her grief this is why she has called her travel consultancy Sarah Stephens Escapes
In this podcast we talk travel and top tips but also how grief can power your purpose.
Amazing lady and we hope you will find this episode not only useful from a travel perspective but also how the power of travel and new connections can really help you move forward in life.
