Sara Pickernell

INSURANCE ADMINISTRATOR

Sara joined NZBritannia in late October 2022, as an Insurance Administrator.  Originally from the United Kingdom she moved to NZ when she was 12, after moving back to the UK in her early twenties, she has since returned and settled in Orewa.

Sara joins us with an abundance of experience in both managing busy offices and supporting staff in their roles. Learning more about the insurance industry, building relationships with clients and being part of our team are the things that Sara is most excited about, in her new role.

Outside of working hours, Sara likes to take her black Labrador, Buddy, for long walks. She also loves the fashion industry, namely buying and selling pre-loved clothing and is a very proud mum to her daughter.
