Let’s talk about lockdown in London, fertility and grief, the travel industry, and getting to know your finances better with Sarah Ives.
In this episode, I catch up with my lovely friend Sarah Ives about ex-pat life in London, the travel industry, and finding ourselves after grief. We also chat COVID-19 motherhood, cooking and finances. Sarah also shares her experience with fertility and the difficult medical decision she had to make during her second pregnancy (40:20-57:00).
Note: This episode may be triggering. Sarah has shared her fertility and pregnancy story so that other women know they are not alone. The times of this part of the conversation are marked above.
Sarah is an American ex-pat from New York living in London with her husband and two little girls. Having always wanted to live abroad, Sarah studied in Paris and got her Masters in Advertising from the London College of Communication. She is a Luxury Travel Consultant and marketing professional by trade and looks forward to exploring the world in the new normal when we are able to travel again.
