Sarah, tell us a bit about yourself. How did you begin your career, and what is your current position?
My career started when I was working in a legal practice. From a young age, I have always been interested in crimes, criminal process and the investigation of crime. In fact, I always wanted to be a lawyer. I started working in firms with criminal lawyers and was lucky to work in a department that was focused around serious crimes. Things got really interesting for me when computers and digital evidence were involved in offences; either in the commission of the crime or in the police investigations.
I worked on some high-profile cases at that time and I found the whole process of digital forensics incredibly interesting. I ended up going to a couple of training courses whilst I was working in the legal practice and realised that I had fallen in love with digital forensics.
