Meet Sarah

Name: Sarah Powell

Your role: Senior Analyst BQA, Global Operations

Region: Melbourne, Victoria

What’s your story?

I started working at NAB back in 2010 and have worked in various roles on a full-time and part-time basis. 12 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer and subsequently found out I have a genetic mutation that predisposes me to breast and ovarian cancer.

How have you made a difference?

I have 2 young children who might have inherited this faulty gene from me, so 6 years ago I started a fun run, to raise funds and awareness of hereditary cancer. NAB has supported me by giving me time off to organise and run the event via the volunteer leave program. I’ve also twice been awarded a NAB community grant of $2,000, which I’ve used to help with the running costs of the event. This means more of the money I raise goes directly to Pink Hope, the charity I support. The event has raised over $100,000 since it started, as well as providing health information and support to the local community.

What are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about changing the future for families with hereditary cancer and NAB has been fantastic in supporting me with this endeavour. From matching the fortnightly amount I donate to Pink Hope, to volunteer leave and community grants, NAB is helping me every step of the way.
