"Sara Vian" Coffield - Brand Ambassador
Local musician, networker & organiser, Sara Vian (Coffield) has a passion for building community, celebrating talent & supporting worthy enterprise; also hosting the pop-up Goodwill Café where Becky Percival (CEO of Fab Frome) popped in for tea!
After launching her debut EP back in April 2015, earning the title of “fastest-selling local indie artist”, Sara became aware of the challenges facing indie entrepreneurs trying to promote themselves, so signed up for a journalism course & took on the role of Brand Ambassador at Fabulous Frome to immerse herself in the world of marketing.

He has worked for clients in event management, civil engineering, medical documentation, psychotherapy and couture. He has returned, on a part-time, freelance basis to the public policy group and is also employed by a niche engineering company in Somerton.
