Sarah Skorupa - Parish Support Officer
I live in Catalina having moved here from Darwin in 2008 after the birth of our first daughter, where I was a very happy and dedicated `stay at home mother’ for 6yrs. My family consists of my amazing husband Michael, two beautiful daughters and myself.
I helped my husband with the operation of his small fencing business, Clearwater Fencing, while also obtaining my Cert IV in Business Administration 2012; but by far the highlight of my life is my family and I revolve my life around them.
When we are not working we are often out in nature camping and fishing etc, as we try our best to maintain a good family work balance.
I look forward to meeting you at the Anglican Church, Batemans Bay.
