Sarah Vordermeier

Online Health Editor / Health Journalist

Sarah was born into a health-oriented family in the UK, with both parents working as immunologists. It was then only natural that she became a sports enthusiast at a young age – she has even worked at major international sporting events. Later, after becoming lactose-intolerant as an adult, nutrition and diet then also transitioned into a crucial everyday topic of interest. Experience in translation, proofreading, content management and research means that she brings along many insights to her role as Health Editor for the UK, Irish and US markets at cerascreen.
