Sarah Russell

Organising Secretary & member of the Association Executive Committee

Born and raised in Edinburgh, Sarah's early years were centred around sport and, in particular, rhythmic gymnastics.  Sarah was selected as a member of the Scottish Team from the age of 11, representing her country on many occasions and becoming Scottish Champion in the mid 80's.

A qualified teacher, Sarah taught PE up to and including A Level.  She taught at a secondary comprehensive in Berkshire for 7 years, before retraining as a rural surveyor at Cirencester Royal Agricultural College.  After 4 years as Head of Marketing for a design company in London, Sarah returned to Scotland to manage an estate in the Borders.  She jointly ran this as a very successful business for over a decade, before moving to East Lothian in 2012.  

Sarah has had a very strong connection with East Lothian for all of her life - her parents have had a home in North Berwick for 40 years, moving permanently to the coastal town 25 years ago.
