Sarah Mathiesen

Marketing and Communications Manager


Sarah is a multi award-winning public relations practitioner and journalist with more than 15 years’ experience.

At the crux of Sarah’s interest in communications is a passion for telling human-driven stories and engaging stakeholders in meaningful ways to drive brand advocacy, build deep-rooted relationships and ultimately deliver on strategic objectives. 

Her diverse career has seen her lead media, marketing and engagement strategies for some of the world’s biggest pharmaceautical companies, major infratructure projects and government agencies. However, one of her strongest drivers is the desire to contribute to the development of North Queensland’s cultural identity and her most rewarding projects have included those where she could champion independent musicians, authors, theatre companies and grassroots festivals; as well as founding Townsville-based Arts magazine, HUXLEY Press ( 2017-2023). Sarah is a passionate supporter of Townsville’s Arts community and enjoys taking part in community theatre when she is able.

Sarah has long admired Dancenorth’s creative output and heart-led approach to everything the company does and is excited to be joining their passionate team.
